Paths to Beethoven
In 2020, the world will celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday. The Wiener Konzerthaus is preparing the path to those celebrations and will embark on a performance of all of the composer's symphonies and string quartets in the 2017/18 season. Within a period of just 10 days, the Cuarteto Casals will perform Beethoven's entire oeuvre for string quartet. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra under its chief conductor Philippe Jordan will perform all of the symphonies over a period of just three weeks.
