This work for orchestra was commissioned by Arktisk Filharmoni and was premiered at the Stormen Cultural Centre in Bodo in February 2020. The composer writes "'A Walk to Beethoven' is a walk to Beethoven's Symphony no. 7. It is the main theme of the second movement that you can discern in my piece. I chose that theme partly because I just love it, partly because it has within itself a wandering pace. The work consists of 14 small parts (played without breaks). I do not regard it as 14 variations: it is rather 14 different versions, like 14 flowers grown from the same musical seed. Or maybe: like 14 different paths, all leading to Beethoven.".
