This exciting series seeks to reveal the political backdrop to Beethoven’s life, and in particular the heroic acts of the 1st Bashkir Regiment who played such an important role for the liberation of the Netherlands, then under Napoleonic rule. In this series we will take a stroll around the key sites where this story unfolded with our wonderful story tellers Irene and Mark, followed by music of the period on contemporary instruments to take you back to 1813!

In this episode, Marc and Irene will visit numerous important sites in the village of Wijhe, including the old Windmill, which all played a role in the Bashkir’s journey across the river.

We will also hear from Kaoru Iwamura and Guy Sonnen with more exciting music on instruments of the period!
