The Letters of Ludwig van Beethoven
Our producer and music director Julian Lampert reads letters written by Beethoven to his patron, close friend, and student, the Archduke Rudolph of Austria. These letters, together with the Heiligenstadt Testament written to his brothers, expose the innermost being of Beethoven—they are our most valuable glimpses into the hidden torments of this revolutionary genius, only second to his music; please join us for this exploration of Beethoven, in his own words.
