...perpetuating Beethoven's heritage

THE

PROJECT

ABOUT

"Beethoven Now!" is a collective specialising in the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, presenting his work in the context of the modern sunlight through innovative and historically informed interpretations.

 

The main objective is to perform Beethoven's music at the highest level, bringing passion, youthful energy and dedication into his symphonic, solo, chamber and vocal works.

The project was born in Helsinki, Finland in 2016, at the heart of the Sibelius Academy from a group of driven, entrepreneurial musicians. Together with internationally known artists, the Beethoven Now! Chamber Orchestra was founded.

At the top of the project's priorities is education. The large spectre of its community helps bridge the gap between academia and the professional world, while serving as a stepping-stone for many to grow artistically and professionally.

 
 

The Beethoven Now! Chamber Orchestra consists mainly of graduates of the Sibelius Academy, professional musicians of the Finnish music scene, in addition to international artists. The ensemble has a steady core team which identifies itself as a community, open to new members and collaborations.

 

One of the priorities of the orchestra is to develop a strong sense of chamber musicianship amongst the players. Sharing an active role in the leading process, enhancing communication and awareness between players and developing advanced ensemble-playing skills, are strategies that contribute to establishing a strong sense of unity and freedom. ​

 

Commitment, professionalism and collegial work ethic, are some of the prerequisite keywords of our ensemble.
