After the cancellations in spring and the long concert break, the time has finally come: In September we will play “live” in front of an audience again!
We will make up for the cancelled concert in June on the occasion of the Beethoven Year on the Wieden, in a somewhat shortened form with a program of about one hour without a break, but still: we will play again!
You will hear the great Trio op. 38, Beethoven’s own arrangement of his famous Septet op. 20, dedicated to the Viennese doctor Johann Adam Schmidt, with whom Beethoven was treated for his incipient hearing problems.
This work is preceded by “Before Beethoven”, a short trio by Karl Kohn. Kohn was born in Vienna in 1926, had to emigrate with his parents to the USA in 1938, studied there at Harvard and elsewhere, and then taught for many years at Pomona College in California. As a pianist and composer, Kohn is one of the most important mediators of contemporary music in the USA. It is a special pleasure for us to make his music sound in Vienna as well!
When & Where:
Happy birthday, Beethoven!
