Beethoven’s genius ranges from the large scale orchestral works, like the 9th, to the more intimate sonatas, quartets, and piano trios. A few months back Baltimore was treated to the complete Beethoven cello sonatas, performed by Peabody faculty member Amit Peled, and Peabody alumnus Alon Goldstein. It was a truly amazing performance.
Peled and Goldstein will reunite, along with violinist Ilya Kaler, to perform three of Beethoven’s piano trios– the Gassenhauer (op.11), Ghost (op. 70, no.1.), and Archduke (op. 97). The concert will be a benefit for Community Concerts at Second, which is a really amazing, and free concert series (though this being a fundraiser, it is not free) at Second Presbyterian Church.
Even if you can’t make this highly recommended date (I can’t, I have to work), please keep the Community Concerts at Second in the back of your mind. It regularly features BSO principal performers, like the time I saw BSO Concertmaster Jonathan Carney…for free.
