This biography of Ludwig van Beethoven builds its narrative around an actual letter found after his death, addressed only to the composer's "immortal beloved." Through recollections and scattered hints, we receive glimpses of Beethoven's relationships with women, particularly his close interaction with a pair of very different Countesses.
In anticipation of the May 17 Immortal Beethoven concert, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO) is delighted to co-present the classic 1994 film, Immortal Beloved. Building on the passionate crescendo of the film screening, join the ESO inside the Winspear Centre for an electrifying evening of music from the titan from Bonn. This all-Beethoven night includes the “Triple” Concerto, featuring soloists from the ranks of the ESO, and the radiant Eighth Symphony – a work of optimism and humour by a man who revolutionized music.
