BTHVN on Tour comes to Boston, on display for one week only in New England Conservatory's Burnes Hall.
The traveling exhibition was developed by leading logistics company DHL and Beethoven's birthplace museum, Beethoven-Haus Bonn. Displays include artifacts that have never before been displayed outside of the Beethoven-Haus museum.
Among the rare exhibit items are an ear trumpet used by the composer and an original print from Andy Warhol's 1987 Beethoven Series. Multimedia displays-including an animated depiction of Beethoven's hand writing the manuscript of his famous Diabelli Variations-will bring visitors closer to the composer and his creative processes. Visitors will also have the unique opportunity to take home a personalized wax seal of their own, just as Beethoven famously had on his violin
