L. van Beethoven:Sonata for violoncello and piano No.3
J. Haydn:Cello Concerto in D major
J. Brahms:Symphony No. 2
Although he never wrote a cello concerto, Beethoven loved this instrument and often played it at home, for his own enjoyment. At this concert, we will make another incursion into the chamber music genre, performing Beethoven’s sonata for cello and piano, at the same time reviving one of the traditions of Beethoven’s era, when works from other genres were performed at concerts of symphonic music. In this program, Haydn’s Concerto for cello and orchestra, performed by renowned cellist Clemens Hagen, will defend the “colors” of concert music. The concert program will be rounded off with Symphony No. 2, by the greatest follower of Beethoven’s ideas, Johannes Brahms.
