The motto of this year's Beethovenfest is "Into the Open" and takes up the theme of utopia and freedom in music. A special focus of the festival is the cultural shift that marked the turn from the 18th to 19th centuries and that helped shaped Beethoven's work.
The recordings in the series come from the 2010 Beethovenfest, which runs from September 10 to October 9, as well as from past festivals.
