LUDWIG is a brand new music company, formed in 2012 by a group of ambitious & determined musicians and creative thinkers, all well established in the cultural world. LUDWIG derives its inspiration from its artistic spiritual father, Beethoven, whose entrepreneurship and musical vision were revolutionary.

Form
Ludwig is a collective that can manifest itself in every conceivable formation. From solo instrumentalist to chamber orchestra, small ensemble to large orchestra with choir, and even as producer or programmer. This enables LUDWIG to develop an idea from its artistic merit, whereby the content always determines the form.

Motivation
LUDWIG cherishes its musical traditions, but wants to also question these traditions and follow untrodden paths. LUDWIG develops projects out of an artistic need but also out of social commitment and awareness.

Artistic challenge
LUDWIG uses the talent and creativity of every single musician to open the doors to 400 years of classical music history, and will discover with a curious audience, new ways to experience classical music live. LUDWIG aims to reach and excite new sections of society through challenging and intelligent programming combined with an overwhelming presentation. LUDWIG’s repertoire covers classical and contemporary chamber orchestra works, chamber music, crossovers with other disciplines and music geared for groups like children and adolescents. LUDWIG shall invite both like minded and contrary spirits, challenge creative thinkers and form its own artistic identity through LUDWIG productions.

Ambassadors
Leading soloists and conductors like Barbara Hannigan, Jaap van Zweden, Janine Jansen, Christianne Stotijn, Thomas Zehetmair and the Jussen Brothers have genorously offered their support for LUDWIG and will work with LUDWIG in the near future.

Public & locations
The interaction between the public and the musicians is central to the LUDWIG spirit. LUDWIG aims to reach and excite new sections of society through challenging and intelligent programming, combined with an overwhelming presentation. LUDWIG will of course perform in concert halls, but in order to reach more people, will also be found making music on public squares, in pubs, schools, castles, factories and any other place where it’s imaginable for music to be performed and listened to.
The foundation of all LUDWIG’s activities is the proven quality, experience, talent and 100% commitment of the musicians who will form the core of this adventure, coupled with a groundbreaking artistic vision, a sophisticated marketing strategy and a no-nonsense business model. With this combination of ingredients, LUDWIG not only wants to achieve a prominent position in the music world, but more importantly, capture the hearts of many people.

Ludwig is een splinternieuw muziekgezelschap dat in 2012 is ontstaan. Een collectief van gedreven ambitieuze musici en creatieve denkers die hun sporen verdiend hebben in het culturele veld. Ludwig ontleent inspiratie aan zijn artistieke geestesvader Beethoven, wiens ondernemerschap en muzikale visie in zijn tijd een ongekende revolutie teweegbrachten.

DE VORM
Ludwig is een vrij collectief dat zich in iedere gewenste vorm kan manifesteren. Van instrumentaal solist tot kamerorkest, klein ensemble of groot orkest met koor, en zelfs als producent of programmeur. Dit geeft Ludwig de vrijheid zich vanuit de artistieke inhoud te kunnen ontwikkelen, waarbij de inhoud steeds de vorm bepaalt.

DRIJFVEREN
Ludwig koestert zijn tradities, maar wil diezelfde tradities ook ter discussie stellen en ongebaande paden begaan. Ludwig wil projecten ontwikkelen vanuit eigen artistieke noodzaak, maar ook vanuit maatschappelijke betrokkenheid en bewustzijn.

ARTISTIEKE UITDAGING
Ludwig wil, met ‘roots’ in de traditie en visie op de toekomst, een zo breed mogelijk repertoire presenteren aan een zo uitgebreid mogelijk publiekspotentieel. Ludwig speelt klassiek en eigentijds kamerorkestrepertoire, kamermuziek, cross-overs met andere disciplines en muziek op maat voor speciale doelgroepen als jongeren of kinderen. Ludwig zal meedenkers en tegendenkers inviteren, creatieve geesten uitdagen en een eigen artistieke koers varen met Ludwig-eigen producties.

AMBASSADEURS
Spraakmakende en inspirerende dirigenten en solisten, waaronder Barbara Hannigan, Jaap van Zweden, Janine Jansen, Christianne Stotijn, Thomas Zehetmair en de Gebroeders Jussen hebben zich als ambassadeur aan Ludwig verbonden en werken de komende jaren in verschillende projecten met Ludwig samen.

PUBLIEK EN LOCATIES
Voor Ludwig staat de interactie tussen publiek en musici centraal. Concerten van Ludwig zullen zeker door het bekende concertpubliek worden bezocht, maar daarnaast zoekt Ludwig nadrukkelijk ook een nieuw publiek op en speelt in inspirerende gebouwen, op geliefde plekken en tot de verbeelding sprekende locaties.
