Beethoven - Bach - Mozart
One musician, one instrument, 28 composers: Festival prizewinner and jack-of-all-trades Kit Armstrong travels with the audience through the ages. Whether attending one or all five of the concerts he presents, the world of piano literature opens up in a whole new way through the eyes of this curious and enthusiastic virtuoso extraordinaire.
Although the Enlightenment is not a common epoch in terms of music, its achievements are also reflected here. Melody increasingly freed itself from the basso continuo, a bourgeois musical culture slowly emerged and, at the end of this development, Beethoven even became the first autonomous composer to lead a life without employment. In this third concert of his monumental project "Five Centuries of Piano Music", Kit Armstrong leads us musically and moderately through an exciting epoch - starting with Bach's preludes and fugues, untouched by the upheavals, through Haydn and Mozart to Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata, which already takes us to the threshold of Romanticism.
