    Beethoven’s relationship to nature is a subject worthy of its own book. There are whole festivals devoted to the theme! Today, in less than an hour you will see a slightly different face of Beethoven. Beethoven leaving the palace and the salon. Beethoven walking along a field path towards a tavern. Beethoven working on dozens of folk melodies from various countries: Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Portugal, Russia, Poland, and Tyrol. These melodies celebrate rural and urban life and are a lyrical and playful commentary on human vices. You will be guided through this story by young singers, students of the Opera Academy of the Polish National Opera and chamber musicians of Sinfonia Varsovia.
