„The good is always clear to us “, Ludwig van Beethoven once wrote. A sentence which is still relevant nowadays. Music connects us, especially in these extraordinary times. Let us listen to the wonderful music of the great composer. Played by the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn under the direction of Dirk Kaftan together with our soloists. Be surprised by musical performances which never happened like this before.
