The Big Deal: Chamber Music Society Of Fort Worth Presents Beethoven The Craftsman

by Gila Espinoza 8 Jan 2020 1:30 AM

The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth presents its second all-Beethoven concert in honor of the great composer’s 250th birthday celebration. The concert titled Beethoven the Craftsman features works written by Beethoven the revolutionary at his most creative. Opening the concert is the Piano Trio Op. 70 No. 1 “Ghost” composed in 1808 and is probably the best-known work of this genre rivaled only by the “Archduke” trio. The program continues with the Piano Trio in D Major (after Symphony No. 2) which is based on Beethoven’s 2nd Symphony, a reduction that was made by Beethoven himself. Concluding the program is the Cello Sonata No. 5 in D Major, composed in 1815.

Gary Levinson, Robert de Maine, and Louis Lortie

Violin – Artistic Director for CMSFW, Gary Levinson
Cello – Robert de Maine, Principal Cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic,
Piano – French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie, a past winner of the Leeds Competition and First Prize winner of the Busoni Competition
