Emerging from a vale of profound despair at his deafness, Beethoven's vigorous spirit burst forth in a blaze of creative energy, which these sonatas exhibit gloriously.

     Susanna Ogata and Ian Watson are among the finest period-instrument specialists today. They bring us sonatas of Beethoven from a time of crisis and renewal, 1801-1803, performed on fortepiano and period violin. Emerging from a vale of profound despair at his deafness, Beethoven's vigorous spirit burst forth in a blaze of creative energy, which these sonatas exhibit gloriously. On the program are Violin Sonatas 4 and 9 ("Kreuzer"), and Piano Sonata No. 12 ("Funeral March"), all beloved works heard in a new light. Here is a rare opportunity to hear the fortepiano, a historic instrument that preceded the modern piano, introduced by the charming Mr. Watson. A reception follows.
