Chamber Music Society: All-Beethoven

Walt Disney Concert Hall

About This Performance

Beethoven began his conquest of Vienna with chamber music – his published Op. 1 consisted of three piano trios. He radically redirected the genre, as he did almost every aspect of Western music, intensifying its emotional impact while preserving its expressive intimacy.

Come for:

Australian composer Brett Dean, whose cantata The Last Days of Socrates receives its first U.S. performances over the next weekend, is also a virtuoso violist. He was the soloist when the LA Phil and Esa-Pekka Salonen gave the U.S. premiere of his Viola Concerto in 2005.

And more:

As always, the chamber music concert is preceded by a complimentary wine reception.
