Olga Pashchenko fortepiano
Piano Sonata no. 29, op. 106, "Hammerklavier" Ludwig van Beethoven
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. Olga Pashchenko is one of the top performers on historical instruments. She plays Beethoven's impressive Hammerklaviersonate on both the Graf and the Broadwood fortepiano replicas by Chris Maene.
