OU academic writes about Beethoven for international virtual exhibition

December 2020 sees Beethoven’s 250th birthday, and to mark the anniversary, Dr Robert Samuels of the OU Music Department has contributed an item to Romantic Europe: The Virtual Exhibition (RÊVE).

The exhibition publishes a new ‘exhibit’ each month, and each contains an image of an object connected to a figure important to the Romantic movement, with a short essay on its significance. Robert’s choice is an essay on Beethoven’s ear trumpets.

The virtual exhibition is part of a larger project, European Romanticisms in Association (ERA), a pan-European network that brings together individual researchers, scholarly associations, and heritage institutions engaged in research into European Romanticism. The Co-ordinator of the whole project is Professor Nicola Watson of the English Department at the OU.
