Come celebrate Beethoven’s birthday with Silver Ainomäe, former principal cellist with the Colorado Symphony, Claude Sim, associate concertmaster of CSO, and Joshua Sawicki, orchestral pianist with CSO. Beethoven’s Sonata No. 5 for Cello and Piano was composed in 1815 and published in 1817, during which time the composer had become profoundly deaf. The complexity and deep character of the compositions mark the beginning of Beethoven’s late period. The Piano Trio Op. 70 no. 1, “Ghost,” was named for the ghostly music in the slow movement that may have had its roots in sketches for a MacBeth opera that he was contemplating at the time. Beethoven’s challenging Piano Sonata “Les Adieux” was written at a time when Napoleon’s attack on Vienna in 1809 forced Beethoven’s patron Archduke Rudolph to leave the city.
