Ludwig van Beethoven fought throughout his life for a world in which “all men shall be brothers,” and many of his works are concerned with the struggle for values such as liberty, equality, and fraternity. As part of the celebrations for Beethoven’s 250th birthday, Jazzfest Bonn joins Bonn’s Haus der Geschichte for a dialogue between music and politics. An entertaining stroll with three stopping points where inside stories of historical events will be illuminated by music. The program will be in German.


We will meet at 14:00 in the foyer of the Haus der Geschichte and then walk where the music leads us.
