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. With the sonatas Der Sturm and Waldstein, the brothers Claus and Roeland Vermeulen bring two of Beethoven's absolute best works to life on the 'Broadwood' pianoforte.
The recording of this concert took place before the fire on 18 January and the closure of the Hotel Beethoven exhibition.
Piano Sonata no. 17, op. 31/2, 'Der Sturm'
