December 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
The event seems to have split the Classical Music community.
Some individuals and organisations see the occasion as an opportunity to celebrate Beethoven’s musical achievements.
Others suggest that Beethoven’s music is popular enough and performances and recordings of it are already so plentiful that audiences should be exploring new repertoire and lesser known composers, and particularly work by underrepresented groups.
