NEW in 2016! BEETHOVEN’S LAST THREE SONATAS
Michael Arnowitt, Instructor
6 Tuesdays February 23rd – March 29th, 2016
Tuition: $150, or $30/drop in
$150 tuition for all 6 classes, or drop-in rate of $30 per class (Pre-registration preferred for drop-in classes.) Continuing on the success of his recent concert: Beethoven & Arnowitt VIII , in this class Michael will delve into Beethoven’s final three sonatas and his journey to perform each of them. 2015 marked the end of Michael’s novel study into the psychology of aging and development with a program of Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas op. 109, 110, and 111, universally regarded as among the most spiritual and transcendent music of all time. Written near the end of Beethoven’s life as his health was deteriorating rapidly, these visionary sonatas leave the physical world of the piano’s hammers and strings, taking us on inner journeys to sounds Beethoven could not hear in the external world, but could in his own imagination. This extraordinary music, touching upon themes of gratitude, healing, resurrection, wonder at Nature, and spiritual ecstasy, has moved generations of music-lovers around the world for 200 years. By journeying to his innermost self Beethoven paradoxically found what was universal to all of us, some goodness, some humaneness that we all touch in our better moments.
