The cultural Committee of the Bundestag is a view to the jubilee year 2020

The Committee for culture and media of the German Bundestag spoke yesterday, Wednesday, the Artistic Director of the Beethoven-anniversary-GmbH on the activities of the Beethoven centenary in 2020. The culture and media political speaker of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group, Elisabeth Motschmann, and the competent Rapporteur Yvonne Magwas:

“With Ludwig van Beethoven, we are celebrating one of the most important, most innovative and most popular artists par excellence. With his unique work, he coined the Viennese classicism and prepared the way for the music of the romantic period. Beethoven is not only a brilliant musician, he is also an important Ambassador of German culture, an artist with international appeal, a Humanist and a symbol of integration. The last movement of Beethoven’s 9 is. Symphony to Europe-anthem become an anthem for equality and friendship between Peoples.

The anniversary to 250. Birthday of a composer under the Motto ‘Beethoven re-discover’. It includes 300 projects, as well as thousands of events a program of abundance that has no equal. This leading cultural institutions in Bonn, the hometown of Beethoven play a Central role: for instance, the Beethoven-Haus, the Federal art and exhibition hall of the Beethoven. At the same time the program will find deals nationwide, and, in addition, addressed in particular to the young Generation and to people who previously had little access to the art of Beethoven. Be brought across cultural boundaries people into contact with classical music and excited about it. Here, the organizers also go unconventional ways. They will present Beethoven, not only in classical concerts, theatre plays and Opera performances, but also in the carnival, to house concerts, on the Podium Festival in Esslingen, Germany, to a musical river cruise, as well as interactive concerts for children, school projects and daycare activities. It is important, in this way, the importance of classical music in modern times.

We believe that it is more than appropriate that Beethoven’s 250. Birthday will be commemorated with a jubilee year. Already in 2016, the Federal government has declared the Beethoven anniversary of the national task. The budget Committee of the German Bundestag has decided on a funding in the amount of 27 million euros. And for the Organisation of the programme has been designed and built specifically for a Beethoven anniversary of the society.“
