Preparing to Hear Masterworks: Pinchas Zukerman
Thursdays 1:15-3:15 pm
The Hopkins Center’s 2019-20 performing-arts season features great works of music performed by internationally renowned artists. These 3- and 4-week mini-classes will build foundations with which listeners may more acutely savor the music performed at each of four Spaulding Auditorium concerts. Through a consideration of cultural and historical contexts, some score perusal, and careful listening, our understanding and appreciation of this music will grow and deepen.
Pinchas Zukerman (November 12)
2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, and Zuckerman’s program features three sonatas for violin and piano by the Viennese master. Nearly all of Beethoven’s violin sonatas were composed relatively early in the composer’s career; they provide fine insights into the gestation of his musical language, and illustrate his penchant for consolidating and re-imagining the compositional practice of his predecessors.
