Dear colleagues,

is hosting an *international conference Beethoven Perspectives.* Five main
symposia (with invited speakers) are planned, featuring the topics *The
Political Beethoven*, *A global Beethoven?*, *Beethoven in Bonn*, *Creative
Beethoven*, *Beethoven’s Reception of other Composers*; in addition, the
academy project *Beethovens Werkstatt *is organizing the symposium *Sketches
as Workshop Documents: Creative Processes in Comparison*. We would like to
thank the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien for funding
the congress. Languages are German and English.

*Free papers *will deepen the subjects of all main symposia as well as
extend and enrich the range of the conference program. You are invited to
submit proposals for papers on *topics related to current Beethoven
research *(e.g. analysis and interpretation, performance practice,
philological and genetic questions, biographical topics, Beethoven’s
context and networks, Beethoven reception) as well as papers referring
to *Beethoven
from related disciplines*, such as literature, history, history of art,
philosophy and aesthetics, music theory, sociology of music or
ethnomusicology. Free papers should follow the usual presentation format
(20 minute presentation, 10 minute discussion). Please submit an abstract
(up to 3,500 characters) and a brief biography (up to 1,500 characters) in
