The Beethoven Society of Europe was established in London in March 1993 by a steering committee of distinguished pianists and scholars. Activities for our members involve musicians and scholars from all over Europe and beyond, concerned with the enrichment of both performance and reception of the repertoire. Through a wide variety of events the Society aims to encourage the highest standards of interpretation and scholarship. Our programme of events covers such issues as the comparative study of interpretation and editions, the historical context of the oeuvre, and the most recent Beethoven research. Our concerts feature not only the familiar repertoire of sonatas and concertos but also the less frequently performed chamber and piano music.
