The Cliburn joins a worldwide celebration of the 250th birthday of one of the world’s greatest composers: Beethoven. He is revered as a musical revolutionary—having propelled music and its capabilities into the modern era—and also beloved for his profound connection to the joys, griefs, and hopefulness of humanity.
Cliburn Festival artists-in-residence will come together to explore his remarkable oeuvre of solo, chamber, and vocal works in five concerts over four days. It will be a showcase of the genius and spirit of Beethoven. The Festival features pianists Kenny Broberg (2017 Cliburn silver medalist), Sean Chen (2013 Cliburn third-prize winner), and Filippo Gorini (2015 Telekom-Beethoven first-prize winner); and the Verona Quartet.
