Beethoven 250

Celebrating 250 years of Beethoven in 2020

The APO has asked four New Zealand composers to respond to Beethoven’s music. To accompany these performances, we’ve invited guest speakers to offer their perspectives. Join us for an hour of stimulating, thought-provoking music, performed by the talented APO Young Achievers, and opinions on the life, the music, the times, and the legacy of this colossal figure in Western art.
