#DECLASSIFIED

“The Beethoven Complex: Finding Their Light in the Shadow of Beethoven, from A.P. Heinrich to Johannes Brahms”
David Plylar, Music Division


ABOUT THIS EVENT
Explore multiple sides of the “Beethoven Complex” phenomenon during the year of his 250th birthday, through the lens of special collection items. We will start with a look at the musical-historic complex of contemporaneous composers with an interesting and direct Beethoven connection, such as A.P. Heinrich (the “American Beethoven”) and Carl Czerny. The second part will include encounters with materials related to the psychological effects of Beethoven’s legacy on subsequent composers of stature, like Brahms and Wagner.
