Christmas music has a long and at turns unexpected history. During an online marathon in HSE’s virtual music parlour, musicians performed Christmas carols and festive medieval and Baroque songs. In addition, guests learnt what the TV show ‘In the World of Animals’ has in common with Christmas.
An online event dedicated to the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven was held as part of HSE University’s A University Open to the City project.

In particular, they discussed whether our current times under the conditions of the pandemic have anything in common with the time in which the great composer lived.
