OUR MISSION

The Research Center serves three essential purposes:

(1) to provide a focal point for current research on Beethoven’s life, work, and milieu, at the highest professional level;

(2) to create opportunities for scholars and performers to interact in symposia, workshops, and concerts; and

(3) to enrich public understanding of Beethoven as composer and cultural figure through lectures, conferences, and concerts.

It fosters ties with other universities, centers, and academic departments at Boston University and elsewhere, including the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany. The Center promotes scholarship in a wide spectrum of Beethoven studies, with a focus on analysis and criticism, sketch and autograph studies, biography, and historical and cultural contexts. It maintains a library of books and scores, facsimiles of original sources, and a website that can serve as a portal for scholars, teachers, authors, critics, and members of the general public who wish to be in touch with the most recent Beethoven scholarship.
