Chamber IV: Happy Birthday, Ludwig!

There is perhaps no better way to conclude the chamber music series for 2020 than a special concert dedicated to the great master Ludwig van Beethoven on the 250th anniversary of his birth. Arguably one of the greatest exponents of the chamber music medium, the program opens with his electric and fiery C Major String Quintet, affectionately known as the “Storm Quintet.” It is followed by pianist Sebastian Knauer playing Beethoven’s D minor Piano Sonata, No. 17, also known as the “Tempest.” As we blow out the candles on Beethoven’s birthday celebration, we hear a performance of his majestic “Archduke” Piano Trio, a timeless classic, brimming with the same original freshness as the day it was first heard.
