Extreme Beethoven is based on a similar concept as its illustrious predecessor, Extreme Makeover. Melodies from Beethoven's great treasure trove of themes and motifs are quoted, embellished, compressed, repeated in minimalistic patterns, contrapuntally treated or placed within a new context. This unusual work stems from Johan de Meij's deep admiration for one of the greatest composers of all time.

Extreme Beethoven is conceptueel verwant met Johan de Meij's voorgaande werk Extreme Makeover. Dit keer put hij uit de muzikale rijkdom van Ludwig van Beethoven. Hij citeert, ontleedt, varieert en verbreedt talloze thema's uit Beethovens rijke oeuvre en zet daarmee zijn uitgesproken bewondering voor degen die hij de beste componist aller tijden noemt, kracht bij.

Extreme Beethoven basiert auf einem ahnlichen Konzept wie sein illustrer Vorganger Extreme Makeover. Aus Beethovens umfangreichem Schatz an Themen und Motiven werden Melodien zitiert, erweitert, verdichtet, in minimalistischen Mustern wiederholt, kontrapunktiert oder in einen neuen Zusammenhang gesetzt. Dieses ungewohnliche Werk entspringt Johan de Meijs tiefer Bewunderung für einen der grossten Komponisten aller Zeiten.

Extreme Beethoven est fonde sur le meme concept que son illustre predecesseur, Extreme Makeover. Un theme classique bien connu est d'abord presente dans sa forme originale, puis des changements subtils et surprenants se glissent dans la musique. D'autres motifs beethoveniens apparaissent egalement. Les puristes et les musicologues se gratteront surement la tete en entendant cette piece. Mais il faut comprendre qu'elle est le fruit d'une admiration et d'un respect immenses pour l'un des plus grands compositeurs de tous les temps.

Extreme Beethoven e fondato sullo stesso concetto del suo illustre predecessore, Extreme Makeover. Un tema classico molto conosciuto e dapprima presentato nella sua forma originale, poi il compositore introduce cambiamenti sottili e sorprendenti. Extreme Beethoven s'ispira soprattutto alle nove sinfonie, ma sono ripresi anche temi dell'Ouverture di Egmont, della Sonata al chiaro di luna, di Per Elisa e della Marcia turca. Un sorprendente collage musicale!
