He/she could focus on cultural history or on more technical, analytical issues. The aim will be to trace the history of the genre from its roots in the early 18th century to the present day using mainly works from the established repertory as examples. Visits to live performances in Berlin may also be included. n nBeethoven in German Culture Following last year's elections in Germany, the draft coalition contract included the following statement: "The 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven in 2020 offers excellent opportunities for profiling German culture at home and abroad. Preparing for this important anniversary is thus of national concern." How and why did Beethoven become so crucially important in German culture? In trying to answer this question, the course will begin with a survey of Beethoven's life and works, and then focus on his legacy via key moments in reception history. Primarily in English, but some topics might require German.
