Turning Point

written in the telling moments of transition

Kenny Broberg, Sean Chen, Filippo Gorini, piano
Verona Quartet

The Cliburn joins a worldwide celebration of the 250th birthday of one of the world’s greatest composers: Beethoven. He is revered as a musical revolutionary—having propelled music and its capabilities into the modern era—but also beloved for his profound connection to the joys, griefs, and hopefulness of humanity.

Cliburn Festival artists-in-residence will come together to explore his remarkable oeuvre of solo, chamber, and vocal works in five concerts over four days. It will be a showcase of the genius and spirit of Beethoven.
