Transforming Beethoven & Mendelssohn: Piano Trios on Historical Instruments
This research-led lecture-concert will bring together performer-scholars working in Finland, Germany/Russia, and the UK to present their work with Beethoven and Mendelssohn to the audience in a way that explores and demonstrates nineteenth-century style, technique, and expression in an engaging and meaningful way.
The genius minds of Beethoven and Mendelssohn may already be familiar to modern audiences, but presenting their music on period instruments, in historical style, will explore their works in a context that has the potential to offer new insights − thus bringing to life a sound world unfamiliar to today’s listeners.
