LudwigVaniversary commemorates Beethoven’s 250th birthday over a four-month celebration that pays homage to the creative genius through art, food and, of course, music.

This year marks Beethoven’s 250th Birthday and we’re celebrating with a four-month LudwigVaniversary. During our very Ode to Beethoven, you’ll have the chance to hear Philharmonix, an all-star ensemble featuring members of the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic. In April, make history with us when we record Beethoven’s 7th Symphony for our very first commercial recording project. Finally, bring your birthday hats to our season finale where Stephen Hough will dazzle as he performs back to back Beethoven piano concertos. From special Burial Beer Co. releases to innovative audio installations to culinary partnerships – this birthday will be one for the books!
