Cosmos: Beethoven Ragas
Diluka / Banerjee / Edouard / Festival »Lux aeterna«
Beethoven and Indian music don't really seem to go together at first glance. But a look at Beethoven's notebooks confirms that he did indeed take an interest in Far Eastern art and culture, which were becoming better known in Europe at the time. The composer counted the leading Austrian Oriental scholar and translator Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall among his acquaintances.

The Tschaikowsky-Saal is the central hall in the building of the same name, located near the trade fair and opened in December 2014. The name of the great Russian composer reflects the centre’s purpose and commitment: it is a meeting place in which living culture can be nurtured and a dialogue conducted between German and Russian culture. The hall is suitable for instrumental and vocal concerts by small ensembles, as well as for seminars and exhibitions.
