Ludwig van Beethoven - The Piano Trios

The Pierre Boulez Saal may be closed, but the Beethoven Year continues: enjoy two concerts with Daniel Barenboim, Michael Barenboim, and Kian Soltani who performed Beethoven’s complete Piano Trios here in December 2019. These are works that showcase many of the qualities that define the composer’s genius: a revolutionary approach to musical form, powerful and often haunting emotionality, and the search for new realms of sound. Beethoven’s often-neglected humorous streak is on display in the rarely heard “Kakadu” Variations.
