December 2020 marks 250 years since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven. An occasion celebrated by Vista Alegre through a symbolic set of pieces in honor of one of the most prominent figures in the history of music. Despite dying at the age of 56, Beethoven left behind a vast and impressive body of work, where each piece surpasses the previous one in strength and singularity. Each piece in this collection reveals small subtleties, such as the allusion on the tray to he “Moonlight Sonata”, transmitting its lyrical nature to us through a contemplative palette and a dream-like composition. In the vide-poches, the concerts for piano and orchestra are represented, showing Beethoven’s virtuosity as an instrumentalist, because before he consecrated himself as a composer he was already considered one of the best pianists of his time. In the box, Fatinha Ramos alludes to the mysterious “immortal beloved” to whom the composer ddressed a letter. Finally, for the four cups of coffee, the author chose four remarkable periods in the course of this colossal musician’s life, crucial to his artistic creation.
