Explorers Series: Homage to Beethoven

In December 1770, Ludwig van Beethoven was born in the German city of Bonn. Beethoven would struggle through a life and career of severe personal and professional challenges to literally change the art of music and how it was perceived and consumed by the public. This 250th-anniversary concert pays tribute to his art with two slices of his rich output for violin and piano, and for piano trio: his technically dazzling “Kreutzer” Sonata from his “heroic” period, and his first published work, the effervescent Piano Trio in E-flat major. Artists David Finckel, Wu Han, and Arnaud Sussmann will also share their musical and personal thoughts on the works.

For Explorers Series events: You will receive an e-mail at least 48 hours prior to each concert, with a link to the performance page and instructions on how to watch. Explorers Series concerts are all available to watch for one week after their premiere.
