Beethoven at 245

Celebrating Ludwig van Beethoven’s (245th) Birthday.

Pianist Tristan Lee returns to fortyfivedownstairs,  to round off our year by celebrating Beethoven’s 245th birthday with a dazzling recital that represents three distinct periods in his life.   These four sonatas, all very different in mood,  show Beethoven at his most romantic, innovative, humorous and tumultuous.

The Program:

Sonata Opus 90  No. 27 in E minor   (1814)
Sonata Opus 27 No 1  in E flat major (1801)
Sonata Opus 27 No 2 in C sharp minor (Moonlight – 1801)
Sonata Opus 57 No 23 in F minor (Appassionata -1805)
