Roaming with Beethoven“

Beethoven’s intimate dialogue with nature takes on a spiritual dimension in the Pastoral Symphony. We all are part of nature. With every breath we are connected to the environment.

I understand Beethoven’s music as a force, a force to deal with the ambivalences of nature and our live.

Roaming with Beethoven“ is a dialogue with a masterpiece of the 19th century, that brings together different places and different periods of time. Fragments of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony become mixed with varying audio dimensions and integrated into an imaginary landscape. An open association space is created, where moods somewhere between idyllic and mysterious appear.
