Listening Between the Lines VI
「音樂與文學對話」系列 VI

(In Putonghua 普通話主講)




Works of literature never fail to spark imagination, even influencing the works of musical genius Beethoven. In turn, his creations have become sources of inspiration for many writers, including Leo Tolstoy, E.M. Forster, Thomas Mann, and Milan Kundera. This lecture-recital will delve into the composer’s creative relationship with literature. Join us as we ponder how and why “there will continue to be thousands more, but there is only one Beethoven.
