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.
