Award The Gulden Spoor
The 10th of July 2014, Jan Caeyers was awarded the Gulden Spoor for Cultural Élan in Bruges (Belgium).
Every year Beweging Vlaanderen-Europa vzw (Flanders-Europe Movement non-profit) awards the Gulden Spoor for Cultural Élan to people who have left a memorable stamp on in Flemish cultural life. Caeyers's name is of course mainly associated with his Beethoven biography, which was published five years ago. The publication is considered to be the international reference work on the 18th and 19th century musician with roots in Mechelen.
