    Sunday at Tufts-Community Concert Series: Beethoven's Five Sonatas for Cello and Piano

     Beethoven’s Five Sonatas for Cello and Piano: Music That Enacts its Own Becoming. Many consider Beethoven to have been a visionary who—along with Freud, Darwin, and Marx—significantly shaped our sense of ourselves as “Human”; that is, beings endowed with a rich and complex inner life, and a Will, capable of reflection as well as action in the world. In the case of Beethoven, the way we engage the musical experience has been forever transformed because of his music, which continues to inspire us to take risks and think “outside the box”. Performed by renowned cellist Pieter Wispelwey and pianist Lois Shapiro, his five remarkably diverse cello sonatas span his entire compositional output, and thereby serve as a microcosm of his entire oeuvre—affording us an opportunity to explore a musical process that seems to "Enact its own Becoming".

    This concert is made possible by the Granoff Music Fund.
