Ludwig, an imaginary figure, visits the International May Festival and engages in conversation with participants and visitors about the contradictory relationship between the establishment and revolution. Together with Beethoven's Sonatas for cello and piano, the recorded conversations form the starting point of the storytelling. Through the employment of contemporary techniques, these are transformed into an incredible new composition for cello, keyboard instruments and electronic music: a concert poised between tradition and electronic avant-garde.
