Piano Sonata no. 27, op. 90 Ludwig van Beethoven
Fantasie, op. 17 Robert Schumann
Listen to Beethoven’s music as it would have sounded in its day! The Beethoven Pianoforte Sessions, part of the HOTEL BEETHOVEN exhibition, offer the audience the subtle sounds of the fortepiano, the ancestor to the modern piano. For the first part of this series, Wouter Valvekens sets the ball rolling. This young pianist studied in Antwerp, London and Brussels and treats you with an intimate sonata by Beethoven and the unforgettable Fantasie by Schumann.
