Pianoforte Concert with Deborah Belcher, Pianist« Back to Events
Volumes have been written about Beethoven, but fundamental to his creativity was the predominant reliance on beauty as a way of communicating idealized concepts. In a letter written to his composer friend Cherubini, he noted “true art is imperishable and the true artist finds profound delight in grand productions and genius.” After 190 years, there is no questioning the genius of Beethoven and the challenges presented to the performer.
On Sunday, November 10 at 3 p.m., join us for a wonderful afternoon recital featuring Dr. Deborah Belcher, who will be performing three of Beethoven’s great piano compositions: Bagatelles Op. 126, the Sonata in D minor Op. 31#2, and the Sonata in D Op. 10 #3. Deborah has spent a musical lifetime in discovering the challenges and beauty of these works and the genius that was Beethoven’s.
Deborah has performed as a recitalist and collaborative pianist through the Eastern U.S. and in Canada, including appearances as a soloist with groups such as the Blue Ridge Symphony, The Converse College Chamber Orchestra, the Elmhurst Symphony in Illinois, and others. Deborah’s solo and chamber music performances have been broadcast on public radio throughout the Midwest and Southeast.
Seating for Pianoforte is limited. Early reservations are recommended.
