‘Beethoven’s Letters’ is a musical narrative that interweaves the letters and memoirs of Ludwig van Beethoven with the music of his String Quartets. For many people, they know the music of Beethoven intimately, yet his character remains a rich tapestry of ambiguities - a lover and philanderer; a man wounded by his faith yet searching for salvation; a child prodigy abused by his father; a father figure at the tender age of seventeen; a man besieged by illness, wrestling with depression.

In ‘Beethoven’s Letters’ you glimpse a man yearning to be understood by his fellow man, vulnerable through heartbreak, and through his music we feel the depth of his pain and anguish, but above all, his great capacity for love and wonder at the beauty of life.

‘Beethoven’s Letters’, by Anna Melville, features selected letters of Beethoven including the famous ‘immortal beloved’ correspondence and his Heiligenstadt Testament interspersed with movements from Beethoven’s String Quartets Opus 18, 74, 131, 132 and 135.
