Beethoven moves

From 29. September we will show the big autumn exhibition Beethoven Moves in the Kunsthistorisches Museum. This unusual homage to Ludwig van Beethoven displays the influence of the great composer on art and cultural history far beyond music. Beethoven's work inspires, touches, overwhelms and moves us all to this day. Jasper Sharp, one of the curators of the exhibition, gives a short, exciting insight about what to expect in the show.
