After its successful restoration, Beethoven's piano will be revived and played again for the first time on November 24th at the Casino Baden by pianist Gottlieb Wallisch. Listen to the impeccable sound of the hammerclavier - first solo and then accompanied by a quintet of the Vienna Academy Orchestra with historical string instruments in its original sound.
As a special celebration for Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday the city of Baden wanted to revive Beethoven's historic fortepiano. After a successful fundraising campaign and thanks to support from the Federal Office for Monuments and the Province of Lower Austria, it was possible to make this necessary restoration possible.
