Music Appreciation – May 2013

2013 – 04

At our April meeting we listened to the third part of a series “The Life and Works of Ludwig Van Beethoven”

This part covered the period of his life from 1801 until 1824 during which time he became of age as a composer producing such exhilarating works as The 5th piano concerto, Coriolan overture, 5th Symphony and the 4th Piano concerto.

This was the third of a 5 part series and the other two parts will be in September and early in the New Year.

After tea we listened to one of the pieces which had been referred to in the earlier dialogue, the 4th Piano Concerto.
