In 2020, the world celebrates 250 years of Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven was a prominent figure in the transitional period between the classical and romantic musical eras. Considered a revolutionary artist and an artistic visionary, his influence is still felt around the world today, including in Jersey where the Jersey Symphony Orchestra has performed a number of his works over the years. Taking a contemporary approach, these stamps represent a selection of some of Beethoven's most famous compositions. Each stamp incorporates an excerpt from the musical score of the piece, a key instrument in the composition and a portrait of Beethoven himself.
