Beethoven250 Festival

L’Auditori presents a season inspired by the extensive musical legacy of this German genius. Ludwig van Beethoven’s humanist calling, the classical spirit of his initial composition phase, the depth and universal nature of his musical ideas and the radical formal exploration of the final stage of his creative career reveal an unquestionable musical modernity rooted in tradition.

Beethoven’s vast body of work speaks to humanity as a whole, and L’Auditori, as a champion of musical modernity in a plural society and the home of music by all and for all, finds in this composer an outstanding figure at every level. Furthermore, his deafness challenges us, making us reconsider the meaning of art from a perception point of view: what is music if the creator of the Ninth Symphony never heard his work? This also helps connect us to various social groups that perceive reality, and also art, from different perspectives.

An Accessible Festival‎
The Beethoven250 Festival is committed to providing accessibility services for most of the ‎festival’s events and adapting them to meet their artistic and theatrical characteristics. This ‎idea was inspired by Beethoven’s deafness and his own personal perception of art.‎
‎ ‎
During the festival, there will be subtitling, sign language interpreters and a hearing loop for ‎people with impaired hearing and audio descriptions and programmes in Braille for blind and ‎visually-impaired people. In addition, the areas reserved for wheelchair users will be ‎increased. The programmes will be designed for optimum legibility, and pictograms will be ‎used to indicate which services are available at each concert.‎
