the Beethoven myth

the Beethoven myth

Over almost two centuries now, Beethoven’s music has fascinated and inspired as much as it questioned.

Beyond the musical dimension of the artist, the exhibition in which he is featured at the Philharmonie de Paris, focuses on his incredible aura and mythical dimension: Why this musical prodigy, affected by deafness by his thirties, crystallizes so many fantasies? In which extents, his life course has influenced his musical journey back then, and still continues to influence a whole generation?

The Philharmonie de Paris offers a few answers, thanks to a sound circuit very well documented, as well as several testimonies of relatives of the artist and some letter extracts that you can discover until January 29th, 2017.
