Die Konferenz findet im virtuellen Raum statt.
The conference-festival on Beethoven’s keyboard music and its historically informed performing practice will take place as part of the celebrations for the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. The lectures will focus on three main topics:
- philology (examination of printed editions, manuscripts, sketches)
- context (organology, contemporary reception, publishing market)
- and most importantly, contemporary performing practice (relationship between notation and performing practice, dynamics, pedalling, metronome marks, rhythmic flexibility, embellishments, improvisation, etc.).
Among the speakers:
Tom Beghin (Orpheus Institute, Gent)
Clive Brown (professor emeritus, University of Leeds)
Barry Cooper (University of Manchester)
Michael Ladenburger (former head of the museum and custodian of the collections, Beethoven-Haus, Bonn)
Christine Siegert (Beethoven-Archiv, Bonn)
