Young Music Italy #2

Thursday 15 December, 6pm

Second event in the series “Young Music Italy”

Charles Rosen and Beethoven

Maria Letizia Michielon will give a lecture about Charles Rosen, the American pianist and musicologist, who felt a profound connection to Italy with respect to both his academic and concert career. The lecture will focus on the book on Beethoven's piano sonatas that Rosen conceived following his performance of the complete cycle during the International Music Campus in the Caetani Castle in Sermoneta, and the subsequent invitation to give a masterclass for the piano students there, which remains seminal to this day.

To follow, a performance of four piano Sonatas by L. van Beethoven:

Op 13 (“Pathetique”) by Alfredo Conte

Op. 53 (“L’Aurora”) by Elisa Fonda, pianoforte

Op. 90 and op. 81a (“Les Adieux”) by M° Maria Letizia Michielon Maria Letizia
