Complete Beethoven!: In Recital with Brendan Joyce and Alex Raineri
After the success of their 2020 In Recital performance, Artistic Director, Brendan Joyce and Australian pianist Alex Raineri join forces again for three intimate and classic style concerts in which you’ll hear them perform all ten of Beethoven’s Sonatas for Piano and Violin. Performances of these works in a cycle are rare in Australia, presenting audiences with a “bucket list” opportunity (in fact, we can’t recall the last time these Sonatas were performed in their entirety here in Queensland!).
Hungarian violinist Joseph Szigeti once said, “the primary motive force in taking possession of a body of works like the Beethoven Sonatas, must be – love and feeling.” We invite you to
hear the love and feeling that Brendan Joyce and Alex Raineri bring to this timeless and relevant body of work, from one of Western music’s greats.
*Concert One presented as part of 4MBS Festival of Classics
