Beethoven: The Basics with Andy Bush

By Bauer Media
Andy Bush loves rock and indie music. He’s been ‘classical curious’ for a while and is fascinated by Ludwig van Beethoven, but doesn’t know where to start.

Until now.

Andy takes the plunge into Ludwig’s life and music in the great composer’s 250th year, with a bit of help from world-class musicians including violinist Nicola Benedetti, conductors Sir Mark Elder, Jonathon Heyward, Carlo Rizzi and Karin Hendrickson, cellist Matthew Barley, pianist Stephen Hough and clarinettist Julian Bliss.

Discover more about Beethoven in these bitesize podcasts, based on a 4-part series broadcast on Scala Radio in Spring 2020, produced by Jenny Nelson for Bauer Media.
