The Piano, before and after Beethoven
Boston, Massachusetts
Thursday, 20 February 2014 - 8:00 PM
How much time Mozart and Beethoven actually spent together may not be known, but there is no denying the deep influence that the older composer had on the younger, and it is clear that Beethoven was in turn, a heavy presence for the American composer Charles Ives. Tonight, students offer a program featuring three monumental works for solo piano. Mozart's Sonata No. 8, heartbreaking and dark, written just after his mother's death. Ives' Concord Sonata, honoring pillars of the Transcendelist Movement. And finally, Beethoven's Sonata No. 23, about which Lenin is known to have said " If I keep listening to Beethoven's Appassionata", I won't be able to finish the revolution."
