Program Notes
A brief journey into the idea of Beethoven from my own subjective position, this work glancingly engages with ideas, ideologies, cultural figures, institutions, quotations, musical quotations, mythology, religion, and dogs; which in one way or another, relate to the figure of the 18th-19th century German composer. These ideas are primarily presented in the form of text/speech, but they are combined with music written by Beethoven, as well as music written by other composers quoting Beethoven. This is meant to make perceivable some of the complexity of Beethoven as a cultural figure in this day and age.
