National Tour 2020: BEETHOVEN

2020 marks 250 years since Beethoven’s birth. We’re celebrating by embarking on an ambitious project touring Beethoven’s complete string quartets throughout New Zealand – and internationally.

Beethoven’s music is lauded and loved for its vitality, creative spark, and messages that speak of humanitarianism and universality. 250 years on, Beethoven’s music reverberates as loudly as ever. Because it offers something for everyone, we want to share this music with as many people as possible. Our BEETHOVEN National Tour in 2020 will see us performing even more concerts than ever before in towns and cities big and small.

We announced our National Tour 2020 in December 2019 to give you a taste of what's to come. Mark the concerts in your diaries now and stayed tuned for full programme, venue, and ticketing information to be released in early 2020!

“No Beethoven celebration can be joyful enough. It’s almost like celebrating the birthday of music itself.”

Leonard Bernstein
