Already during his life time Beethoven was regarded as a myth, being the first modern artist in the sense of an autonomous spirit. The six part series “Beethoven - The Myth! His life in six sonatas” sheds light on aspects of Beethoven’s mysterious and erratic personality that helped creating the legend. His piano sonatas build the core of the series. Of all musical genres, the piano sonata is the only one that Beethoven worked on almost consistently throughout his life. Like a musical diary, they give us a deep insight into Beethoven’s emotional world.

With appearances from Rudolf Buchbinder, Jan Caeyers, Uwe Bohm and others.
