Surprising encounters in Beethoven's private quarters

A composer who could no longer hear his own music. Inconceivable. But that’s what happened to Ludwig van Beethoven. This evening Anima Eterna Brugge delve into Beethoven's twilight years with as pièce de résistence Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, often seen as a first try for the Ninth. Kurt Van Eeghem is our host. Personal contact with the artists is guaranteed. And surprising installations provide a touching framework, literally.
