Early Music Chamber Music – Radio West Concert

Eric Hoeprich, coach
Bart van Oort, coach

Various chamber music works featuring fortepiano and historical clarinet

This concert in the Radio West Concert series affords an opportunity to hear various ensembles from the Early Music department, featuring instruments such as an historical clarinet and a fortepiano. One of the works to be performed this afternoon is Beethoven’s Piano trio in B-flat major, Op. 11. Beethoven wrote this work for fortepiano, clarinet and cello in 1797 and dedicated it to the Viennese Countess Maria Wilhelmine von Thun.

The students will be playing replicas of instruments from Beethoven’s time. Today’s concert will be a perfect opportunity to hear how much better the detail and colour of the music come through when it is performed on historical instruments.
