Young musicians perform the music of young Beethoven, and teachers of the Sibelius Academy of Uniarts Helsinki perform the music of Beethoven’s teachers. A new piece by Sophia Chambon, a student of composition, will also premiere.
The Beethoven 250 concert series of the Sibelius Academy of Uniarts Helsinki (17 September – 15 December 2020) presents Ludwig van Beethoven’s production with the emphasis on works that feature less often in typical concert programmes. To mark the anniversary of the composer, the students and teachers together perform Beethoven’s chamber music for wind instruments, works dating back to his youth, and folksong arrangements for vocal and chamber ensembles. The concert programmes also include familiar solo and duo works from the composer’s different style periods.
