The long-anticipated finale concert in the concert series "In Dialogue with Beethoven", "Crossroads", will finally be put on stage as live performance for our Hong Kong audience! The concert, which was scheduled last year in celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday in 2020, was postponed due to the pandemic. With an updated programme and new video installations, the concert reassures our audience that it is worth the wait. Goethe-Institut Hongkong cordially invites music lovers to join us on June 23, 2021 for a unique music experience in the concert "Crossroads" at the McAulay Studio in the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Admission is free, but registration is required:

Interpretations of extraordinary documents bearing witness to Beethoven’s creative process, including preparatory materials for, sketches, continuity drafts of and eleventh-hour additions to the String Trio (Op.3), Violin Sonata in G Major (Op.30 No.3), String Quartet No.13 (Op.130)  and the Bagatelles (Op.126). The event is enhanced by a video installation featuring explanatory text and striking reproductions of Beethoven’s working materials.
