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.

Beethoven’s Eighth Sonata is a sunlit stream of music; from its first bars, it seems as if we’ve suddenly come across its beauty deep in the woods. The Ninth is his Everest—twice the length, difficulty and depth of many of his earlier sonatas. The cycle closes with Beethoven’s loveliest, most graceful music.
