Webinar: Beethoven’s Family Feuds

Join us for this free webinar of the Ensemble for the Romantic Center, to be held on Thursday, 1 December, from 5:30 to 7:00pm. We will addresses Beethoven’s struggles to keep custody of his nephew Karl and his ongoing feuds with his family. Beethoven’s late style will be examined as an artistic sublimation of the pressing issues in his personal life, focusing on the profound aesthetic transformations in his late works.
