New 10-week course in September: “Beethoven and the Age of Revolution”

02/08/2019

Using visual presentations, music videos and live demonstrations at the piano I shall be exploring the life and music of Beethoven, whose work represents the enormous changes taking place throughout Europe at the turn of the 19th century as a result of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution.

The music of Beethoven’s contemporaries, including Mozart, Haydn and many other lesser-known composers of the time will also be discussed as we explore the artistic traits affected by the changing times, leading directly to the birth of Romanticism.
