BTHVN Tour Commemorates Beethoven's 250th Birthday

Recently, I was invited by DHL to preview the first U.S. stop on the global BTHVN exhibit tour celebrating the life, work, musical and cultural legacy of Ludwig von Beethoven.

The BTHVN traveling pop-up exhibit is a partnership between Beethoven-Haus Bonn and DHL to commemorate Beethoven's 250th birthday. While eight US and international stops are scheduled for the tour, the uniquely Los Angeles stop included concertos featuring Gustavo Dudamel, Lang Lang and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Whether in Los Angeles or New York, prior to each weekend concert, the weeklong BTHVN pop-up exhibit will feature interactive activities highlighting music, media and historical artifacts including a real violin owned by Beethoven – as well as replica pianos on loan from Beethoven-Haus Bonn.

Many of the featured original objects will be shown internationally for the first time including an ear trumpet used by the composer and an original print from Andy Warhol’s Beethoven series from 1987.

Both my husband and I were fortunate to view items unique to Los Angeles, including Beethoven’s viola and original scores that where reflected in the LA Phil programming.

While the Los Angeles BTHVN pop-up tour and Beethoven programming has ended, future US stops will also offer pre-concert lectures for ticket holders highlighting each stops unique elements.Visit the official BTHVN WEBSITE to learn more about the BTHVN pop-up exhibit tour and its schedule.
