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. Hiroko Fukushima connects Beethoven's well-known Mondscheinsonate with a late Haydn, and is joined by tenor Philip Defrancq in some charming songs by both masters.
The recording of this concert took place before the fire on 18 January and the closure of the Hotel Beethoven exhibition.
