This is a rare chance to hear Beethoven’s music played on instruments of his time. Jaap ter Linden, although famous as a baroque cellist, has always been a fervent Beethovenian. His mastery on gut strings is perfectly paired with the keyboard work of historical fortepiano expert, David Breitman. This all-Beethoven program will include two contrasting cello sonatas, a charming set of variations, and the late Bagatelles op. 126 for solo fortepiano.
David Breitman will also lead a free masterclass from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM on November 3, 2018 at Synod Hall. You can RSVP on the facebook event page.

“Beethoven’s creative psyche was in part shaped by an innate desire to push the instruments of his time to their physical and expressive limits, and it is this sense of living close to the edge that David Breitman and Jaap ter Linden embrace with infectious exuberance, captured in sound of alluring warmth and detail.”
–Julian Haylock, The Strad. Full review here.
