Beethoven’s Birthday Bash: The Complete Violin Sonatas
Eric Wyrick, our inspired concertmaster, presents all of Beethoven’s violin sonatas across three concerts. Beethoven poured his whole heart and genius into these 10 pieces, and they embrace an enormous range of emotion. In these violin showpieces, the piano is equally important, and master pianists Simone Dinnerstein, Alan Feinberg, and Drew Petersen join Wyrick for the occasion. Don’t miss the intimacy and excitement of chamber music at its best in honor of Beethoven’s 250th birthday.

Our journey begins with Beethoven evoking his heroes Mozart and Haydn in his First Sonata. In his Second, you start to hear a delightful sense of impishness. The Third deepens his expression with a particularly tender slow movement. And by his Fourth, he has tossed off his models and plumbs dramatic depths in his first minor-key sonata.
