The glorious works were broadcasted in chronological order – seven of them live – from nine venues of symbolic significance all over Europe: from the Arkadenhof of the Kurfürstliches Schloss in Beethoven’s birth city of Bonn, the Old Town Square in Prague, the ancient Greek theatre at Delphi, and from Lugano, Dublin, Helsinki, Luxembourg and Strasbourg.

Thanks to ARTE’s public partner channels, moreover, this exceptional musical feast will be available to audiences throughout Europe. Not only was it streamed live on ARTE Concert with subtitles in English, Spanish, Polish and Italian, but still now viewers will be able to replay the concerts via ARTE Concert.

The evening closed with the Ninth Symphony broadcast live from Vienna as the city where Beethoven composed all his symphonies, and where, finally, he died. The line-up is an illustrious one, featuring the Mahler Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Daniel Harding, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra with its new chief conductor Nicholas Collon at the rostrum, the Wiener Symphoniker conducted by Karina Canellakis, the Ensemble I Barocchisti and its founder Diego Fasolis, Teodor Currentzis’ musicAeterna and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg under the baton of Marko Letonja – to name but a few.
