Programme Information

A Beethoven Revisited Event

Three Marches Op.45
8 Variations in C on a Theme by Count Waldstein WoO 67   
Grosse Fuge in B flat Op.134

Witnessing a piano four-hands recital can be compared to experiencing the cut and thrust of a major sporting event, except with added musical sensitivity! Tim Horton and Benjamin Frith join their considerable forces for the energetic, sometimes humorous Three Marches, and the sparkling variations on Count Waldstein’s theme. And then comes Beethoven’s own epic arrangement of the Grosse Fuge…

“…the Great Fugue is more than a piece; it’s a musicological Holy Grail, a vortex of ideas and implications. It is the most radical work by the most formidable composer in history.” Alex Ross, The New Yorker 

Running time: approx 1 hour (no interval)
