Beethoven = Black

A fascinating series of concerts, talks and discussions from musicians and musical professionals across the globe on the subject of discrimination, diversity and inclusion in classical and early music. Beethoven was known for his liberal and forward-thinking attitude towards equality. In this series he forms a metaphor for the need to change and open this sector of music to increased diversity.

Listen to early classical music as it would have been heard by the composers themselves, while enjoying performances by world-class musicians on high-quality historical Fortepianos
