Beethoven Twilight Recitals

All events

Wed 15 November 2017 18:30

This season the Royal Conservatoire is organising its ninth series of Twilight Recitals to be held on five Wednesdays from 6.30 to 7.30 p.m. In previous seasons Haydn, Chopin, Schubert, Mozart and Bach have been the composer of the year, This year it is the turn of Beethoven. Beethoven is the benchmark for musicians. Whether you regard Beethoven as belonging to the Classical or the Romantic period, one way or the other he was a musical genius. Beethoven marks the transition from Classical to Romantic and from the salon to the large stage. It is impossible to imagine any note by Beethoven that we do not want to perform and hear, so in addition to his great masterpieces we will also be hearing a lot of his less familiar works during this season. Every department in the Conservatoire is constantly engaged with Beethoven: the Classical Music department, the School for Young Talent and of course the Early Music department. Every concert in this series will therefore have a colourful programme, with soloists and ensembles and from instrumental to vocal. For every instrumentalist and singer, talented youngster or professional, Beethoven is the benchmark for their life as a musician.
