Today finds them in Bonn at the 2011 Beethoven Festival - though the music is by Weber and Mahler. And finally... you can hear a quirky little piece by David Fennessy consisting of the last chord or gesture of a work from each year of the 20th century - 100 chronological chords starting in 1900 and finishing in 1999!
