4 The Bashkir’s Ship Bridge || The Tree and the Castle

Watch online
Hammertime Duo: Olga Matieva & Nikolai Martynov

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!

Today we are en-route to a rather special tree, the Kozakken Linde and a castle which saw the arrival of the Bashkirs.

With music from the Hammertime Duo!
