FESTIVAL TO BE BEETHOVEN
This phase will be open to the public. It will be held in Auditori Can Roig i Torres in Santa Coloma de Gramenet. Each artist will have to improvise a piece of about fifteen minutes inspired by a Beethoven’s life fact and a Beethoven’s work. This fact and this work will be made public, by the organization, only half an hour before the beginning of each intervention. It is not mandatory to use the melodies of Beethoven’s work. It is about creating an improvised piece that has some link with the proposed work and with the Beethoven live fact.
