Johannesburg International Mozart Festival to give resonance to Beethoven’s concept of unity
See details below on how two families can also win tickets for this Saturday's Show.
The JIMF runs from 25 January to 2 February 2020.
Translating some of Mozart’s inspiring characteristics into the 21st Century, this year the festival shapes itself around celebrating the birth of Beethoven – who was intrinsically inspired by Mozart – 250 years ago. As such, the theme for the festival this year is based on Beethoven’s quote “Alle Menschen Werden Brüder” which translated, means “all people become brothers”. This theme of unity has a special resonance for its South African audience who will be able to participate in a diverse programme of concerts and cultural events over ten days.
|Richard Cock (CC JIMF)|
Renowned conductor Richard Cock explains that “In this year, 250 years since the birth of Beethoven, we remember again his commitment to the ideals of democracy and freedom. He lived in an age of enlightenment, and developing democracy, much as we do now in South Africa. I hope that this Festival will remind us of this and help us to re-commit to those ideals which he held so dear.”
