Beethoven Project for the Hearing-Impaired

On the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, Danubia Orchestra Óbuda wants to lead the way to music for those who can identify with the composer’s struggles in particular: the hearing-impaired.

We will bring up any physical tool we have in order to deliver the fantastic experience music provides to those people who live their lives hearing loss. During these exclusive performances, conductor Máté Hámori will speak about the secrets of Beethoven’s music supported by a sign interpreter, and we strive to make the music perceivable for the deaf by physical medial devices and contact speakers. Participants wearing hearing-aid may try out how music sounds via the world’s most powerful and most innovative assistive listening technology. (Please indicate your intention to attend in an e-mail sent to the address beethoven@odz.hu.)

Performances are free and requires preliminary registration.
