CASOP: A Requiem for Rice Fundraising Event

Beethoven’s “Kreutzer Sonata”

performed by violinist Anyango Yarbo-Davenport and pianist Gerard Aimontche.

Beethoven originally dedicated the sonata, also called “Sonata Mulattica,” to Afro-European violinist and composer, George Bridgetower. Bridgetower sight-read the sonata, which is notable for its technical difficulty and emotional scope. After a disagreement which enraged Beethoven, he removed the dedication to Bridgetower and replaced it with a dedication to Rudolphe Kreutzer who never performed the work.

INCLUDES PRE-CONCERT TALK, “KREUTZER SONATA” PERFORMANCE,
RECEPTION, AND POST-PERFORMANCE VOCAL SERENADE, 5-9PM
(Fundraising Event Ticket also includes a ticket for 9/21 “Casop: A Requiem for Rice” Choral Performance)
