Tobias Moretti as Beethoven on TV: The dark side of a figure of light
Genialer Grantler. Tobias Moretti als Ludwig van Beethoven in dessen später Lebensphase
Bonn, Vienna – the declared regent of the cultural year 2020 was actually Ludwig van Beethoven, who saw the light of day 250 years ago, in December 1770. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out to be much, because a virus emerged, which the Bonn-born composer missed the anniversary break: cancellations all over the world, concerts, exhibitions, etc. Beethoven often remained just a figure in the year of the Corona outbreak on the edge.
How good that ORF and ARD got down to work together to portray the musical genius in an entertaining and profound way in a historically intricate feature film. “Louis van Beethoven” is running today on the main evening of ORF 2. If you can, reserve the two hours from 8:15 pm. It pays off.

To be seen today, 23.12., 8.15 p.m., ORF 2, and on 25.12., 8.15 p.m., ARD.

The film is played appropriately and lavishly designed, the equipment downright lavish, with wigs, robes, robes and other ornament that takes the viewer back to the 18th century. At this time, the boy Ludwig van Beethoven – called “Louis” in his native Rhineland, where people like to say “French” – already showed his mega talent at the age of eight.
In flashbacks and flashbacks we follow the life path of the composer, who already had to struggle with increasing deafness as a young adult and still wrote milestones in the classical canon of works, including nine symphonies and orchestral works that are still popular today.

Director Niki Stein hires three actors to recreate Beethoven’s stages of development as authentically as possible. The musical prodigy Beethoven is played by the 13-year-old pianist Colin Pütz. He touches the keys himself, on historical instruments such as harpsichord, organ and fortepiano, which gives the film additional mood and color.
The adolescent Beethoven, whose love for Eleonore von Breuning fails because of the classiness of her mother, is embodied by actor Anselm Bresgott with a wonderfully brash Rhineland tongue. Beethoven rebels against his addicted father, against musical constraints, against the exploitative nobility, and sets off to Vienna to see his great idol Mozart (played by Manuel Rubey). The Wolferl is of course too busy with himself and his dissolute lifestyle. Joseph Haydn, on the other hand, takes the aspiring Beethoven under his wing.

Tobias Moretti can be seen as the (g) zealous, increasingly sickly and almost deaf Beethoven of his later years. Beethoven threatens the ingenuity to slip away, commissioned works are thrown back to him as unplayable. Maximum penalty! So it’s no wonder that he’s increasingly mutating into a grumbler, absolutely socially incompatible.
Even before today’s TV premiere, Tobias Moretti has another reason to be happy: He will be awarded the European Culture Prize 2021 for his role as Beethoven. The handover will take place in August in Beethoven’s hometown Bonn. (mark)
