Warsaw’s Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival honours not just the composer, but the wealth of classical music in the 200 years since Beethoven’s heyday. Numerous concerts, conferences and exhibitions take place in venues across the Polish capital for a fortnight.
First held in 1997, the festival began in Krakow with the continued involvement of the notable Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki and his wife Elzbieta. It was moved to Warsaw, though associated events take place across Poland. The festival will take place in Warsaw from March 25 – April 6, 2012.
