The Last Century

Beethoven and the 20th century – episode 3

Today is the third episode in a series of programmes about Beethoven’s influence on composers in the 20th century (and 21th century). In this hour, you can listen to several commissioned works referring to Beethoven’s compositions.

First of all, you can listen to eleven newly composed variations on the well-known waltz by Anton Diabelli, which Beethoven used for his monumental Diabelli variations. We’ll end this programme with two ‘Reflections’ on symphonies by Beethoven, composed at the request of the  Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks (Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) and conductor Mariss Jansons.
