St. Cecilia Chamber Music Houston presents Beethoven, Beethoven, Beethoven!
Beethoven changed the history of music. Departing from the Classical Era of Haydn and Mozart, he boldly ushered in the Romantic Era, paving the way for later composers like Schumann and Brahms. The intense drama created by his innovative approach to composition is thrilling to listeners, yet it also sadly reflects the tragedy of his impending deafness, which resulted in a period of deep depression.
The performers, including pianist Rodney Waters, violinist Sophia Silivos, and cellist Barrett Sills, will play a variety of Beethoven selections, including Sonata for Cello and Piano in A Major, Op. 69; Sonata for Violin and Piano in C Minor, Op. 30, No. 2; and “The Ghost” Trio for Violin, Cello, and Piano, Op. 70, No. 1.
