No musical mind changed the world more than Ludwig van Beethoven. The year 2020 marks 250 years since his birth, and during the 20/21 season, we explore some of his most famous pieces - like his Fifth and Ninth symphonies. We'll also hear composers that inspired his musical beginnings and musicians that began their journey because of his influence.
