In the Beethoven Celebation Year on the occasion of his 250th birthday, listen to some of his greatest choral works in St. Stephen's Cathedral!
Vienna was the center of Ludwig van Beethoven‘s life for more than 35 years. The traces of the composer are diverse: from a large Beethoven Museum, homes and memorials, places of his triumph and doubt, monuments through to Gustav Klimt‘s Beethoven Frieze.
On the occasion of Beethoven's 250th birthday, the famous choral works were intensively worked on in several workshops under the artistic direction of Dr. Marc Ashley Foster by choirs from around the world. The crowning finale is the performance with Vienna Cathedral Orchestra in St. Stephen's Cathedral.
