Welcome to Beethoven = Black

Is Beethoven Black? Can Beethoven really be included in a discussion on inclusion and diversity?

In this musical podcast series, brought to you by Geelvinck Early Piano Festival, Beethoven is the catalyst to set the conversation of inclusion and diversity in Early and Classical Music in motion.

We will hear from musicians and historians from across the globe, alongside Beethoven’s music, artefacts and stories of the past, to discover how this white, western composer might be used as a key to discussing the topic of cultural inclusion in the early music field.
