In celebration of Beethoven’s recent 250th birthday, these programs will feature eight of his ten Sonatas for Violin and Piano, written throughout his life.  Violinist Tim Schwarz joins pianist and Artistic Director Daniel Weiser for these Livestream concerts broadcast live from the magical White Horse in Black Mountain, NC with fantastic videography from RadHaus Studios.  A limited live audience is also invited to be in attendance.   Tim and Dan met at Peabody in the early 1990s and have been performing together ever since.  They were the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassadors of Music, which resulted in a two month, eleven country tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, including Syria, Egypt, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Tunisia.

Over three straight days of performances, they will take you on a journey into the mind of perhaps the greatest composer.  Narrated with fascinating stories by Dr. Weiser, the two men will highlight the passion, vitality, expressiveness, sorrow, joy, and depth in these incredible Sonatas for Violin and Piano.

Part One (April 16 at 7:30) features Sonatas no, 1, 4, and 5 (the famous “Spring” Sonata) from 1798-1801

Part Two (April 17 at 2:00) features Sonatas no. 6-8 , all from 1802

Part Three (April 18 at 2:00) features Sonata no. 9 (the great “Kreutzer” Sonata) from 1805 and Sonata no. 10 from 1812

You can watch the full series or just buy individual concerts.  For those living in the Asheville area, you also have the option of choosing whether to watch the Livestream or attend White Horse in person, where a limited number of audience members are invited.

PART TWO includes Sonatas 6-8, all written in 1802, the year he contemplated killing himself because of his worsening deafness.   All three Sonatas reveal Beethoven’s desire to find a more passionate, and powerful Romantic voice.   If you only want to see this concert, click here:

PART THREE features the incredibly virtuosic Ninth Sonata, better known as the “Kreutzer” Sonata, in which Beethoven tests the limit of both instruments, as well as his final, rather quirky Tenth Sonata, written at the start of his final period of life when his music became more obscure and quite modern.  If you only want to see this concert, click here:
