Beethoven Moment at Zagreb Airport

Beethoven's music filled every corner of the Franjo Tuđman Airport today. At exactly 2:50 p.m., local time, the 3-minute opening piece of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony with a short video was broadcast. The distinctive music of this great composer attracted the attention of passengers, crews, visitors and staff who found themselves at the airport.
Airports across Europe and beyond marked the occasion of the great composer's birthday with a special event – the so-called Beethoven Moment. In the current situation, this event has gained additional meaning - the health crisis and its social implications emphasize how interconnected we all are, and Beethoven's music helps to celebrate the spirit of human unity and resilience.
