11:47 pm
actually history if i may say so i was being a bit i'm kind of born he was born there and spent the 1st 22 years of his life there the very formative years of his life but he's always associated with van of vienna so is beethoven 2020 kind of trying to redress the balance a bit. well we don't intend to rewrite history of course the time that he spent in vienna was very important and he composed all the big works in vienna but you're right the 1st 22 years were very formative for him to grow up to develop. themselves as a musician and as a personality and we believe that it is good to focus not only on the old deaf grimm itself but also on the young composer aspired to change
11:48 pm
something he was a kind of game changer and it's very interesting to deep into the early years when he experienced the french revolution for instance 7989 in bonn and all the context around it. can you give us a taste of the year i know there are literally hundreds of events going on but perhaps you could tell us about a few of the highlights that you already know that. yes it's a big cultural festival with more than $300.00 projects they're all. related to bonn or in the region of bonn and the main idea that it's all ties together is that we offer and invite new approaches to discover beat often and you so it's more than just concerts there are many exhibitions going on the central exhibition of the anniversary year will be at the national art gallery which is based in bonn. and we will have we will have conferences open
11:49 pm

11:50 pm
for work efficiency but once you realize that it's for beethoven you would always recognize it again and. we thought for a logo of this year this is just very suitable and it gives an impression of the an unusual personality that he was most a burka thank you for that we all look forward to next year we'll all be down in bonn and anybody listening from around the world hopefully they'll come to bonn at some point in the year thank you very much thank you so much and now another great classical composer you have the brahms code is a new film made by our very own award winning director christiane bagga this new film examines brahms symphonies through the eyes of orchestra members of the daughter come a filum only braman and their conductor for yardy by the way he's just been named conductor of the year by germany's leading classic awards opus classic anyway i have to say it's a wonderful film i really say that that shows how much thought and hard work goes

11:52 pm
i find the camera philharmonia braman is very exciting because they have a different approach to the question as to how culture can still be economically viable i think it's great they're so successful it is and therefore cried. together we carry the torch a camera film money braman has been at the top of the game to the past 15 years that success is based in part on the orchestras emphasis on the individual artist to have a collective approach to financial as well as artistic management. the documentary casts a spotlight on the individual musicians. and their relationship to the music of proms.
11:53 pm
you. you can you on. and. move it and stuff and. it also looks they working relationship but the maestro himself. he has worked as hard at learning how to conduct about conveying to us what he wants with his bodily movements as musicians of work to learn to play the violin or the chalo or the clarinet. i have worked with quite a few conduct has been very lucky to have worked with some of the world's great
