More About Immeasurable: The Legacy of Beethoven

Join us for this four-week series presented by Dr. Gil Harel.

Week One: Beethoven at 250
The year 2020 marks 250 years since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven in Bonn, Germany. As concert halls, record labels, radio stations, and social media platforms herald this "jubilee" with a veritable Beethoven Bonanza, historians and intellectually-curious listeners will take stock of the impact this one individual has had on western civilization. In the first of a 4-part lecture series, Prof. Gil Harel will discuss the various ways Beethoven's music has figured prominently in the past two and half centuries. Of the many genres in which the composer pushed the envelope, it has been argued that his contribution to symphonic literature was his most profound gift to posterity. Here we will take stock of Beethoven's symphonies and the impact they've had on western civilization.
