What you need to know about this programme:
“Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours.” Beethoven wrote these words in an intimate letter to his Immortal Beloved, whose identity remains a mystery. His astonishing legacy of masterpieces, however, is no mystery. This Valentine’s Day special launches The Year of Beethoven, CPO’s tribute to the greatest symphonic composer of all time. This concert opens with a new commission by Larysa Kuzmenko inspired by Beethoven’s first symphony.
