Anicia Kohler about her piano piece “Mortal Beloved”:

“Beethoven fell in love with Josephine Brunsvik when she was very young. She was one of the most important women in his life, even though she couldn’t marry him due to circumstances society dictated. Could this be what kept the flame alive for such a long time? In 1812, Ludwig wrote a letter to an “Immortal Beloved”, who could very well have been Josephine, or Pepi. The piece “Mortal Beloved” plays with names and longing and with the idea that Beethoven, if he was still alive, would have loved jazz chords. Who knows what he would have done with them.”
