BEETHOVEN - KATZER - CONTRASTS
WEDNESDAY, NOV 18 2020
Jörg Ulrich Krah (cello) and Bernhard Parz (piano) present Beethoven's sonatas for cello and piano, contrasted by Georg Katzer's "Postscripta to B". With their interpretation they set new accents and show both Beethoven's modernity and his different approaches in the different periods of his creative work. The contemporary bridge-building enables new listening approaches and honors the work of two great German composers. The video enables listening pleasure at home after concerts were cancelled due to Covid-19.
The Beethoven-Katzer-Contrasts music video will be exclusively debuted on the ACFNY YouTube Channel on November 18th, 2PM (EDT).
