Sonata for Violin and Fortepiano in C minor, Op. 30 No. 2
Get a head start on celebrating the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven's birth! Acclaimed Seattle-based violinist Ingrid Matthews ("one of the lights on early music's international circuit"; San Francisco Chronicle) and fortepianist Derek Tam come together for an evening of the composer's most cherished works, performed on period instruments.
The piano was central to Beethoven's development as a composer, and the violin sonatas remain central to the instrument's repertoire. From the mysterious opening movement of the "Moonlight" sonata, to the impassioned outbursts of the C minor violin sonata - written as Beethoven was coming to terms with his increasing deafness - experience the revolution that ushered in a whole new era in music.
