Beethoven, Bonn & the Road to Vienna

However, studying his early life in Bonn and Cologne is just as important and illuminating in order to understand his musical foundations and the genius he would become. Join Dr Tom Ford as he explores Beethoven’s early musical influences and the impact they made on him on the lead up to his 250th Anniversary.
