This concert marks the global inauguration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday.
We are very excited to present our December concert with Amici’s new core member, pianist Eunhye Grace Choi and guests Anthea Kreston and Jason Duckles for a concert of Beethoven and Schumann on December 16 in the Wildish Theater.
The choice of Beethoven is clear: our concert marks the global inauguration of the celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday! His piano trio in G Major dates from 1795, first performed at a private home with Beethoven himself at the piano. Our choice of Schumann pairs splendidly with Beethoven. Schumann revered Beethoven and, like many composers, felt he lived and worked in Beethoven’s titanic shadow. In the case of his piano quintet, Schumann created a monumental shadow himself, inspiring countless musicians with this quintessentially Romantic work.
Join us on stage after the concert for desserts and conversation.
