Beethoven in the Parlor
The Locust Grove Chamber Musicians celebrate 1817 with an all-Beethoven concert. The year 1817 was a watershed year for Beethoven when he produced his largest works — the “Missa Solemnis,” the “9th Choral Symphony,” and the “Hammerklavier Sonata, Op. 106.” Tonight’s concert features Beethoven’s “Thirteen Variations for Piano on the Aria, Es war einmal ein alter Mann,” from Dittersdorf’s opera, “Das rote Käppchen,” along with Beethoven’s violin sonata Op 24 No. 5 known as the “Spring Sonata.”
Locust Grove’s Emilie Strong Smith Chamber Music Series offers concertgoers a unique opportunity. Patrons delight in music that the Clarks and Croghans would have heard in the room where they most likely would have enjoyed it — the second-floor Great Parlor of the historic house.
