Update: Cellist Colin Carr and pianist Thomas Sauer played a technically masterful and emotionally profound performance of most of Beethoven’s compositions for cello and piano. They received standing ovations before the intermission and again at the conclusion of the concert. This was a very special experience. And the post-concert reception was lots of fun too!
In 2020, the world is celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, the creative genius whose music continues to inspire and enrich the lives of people all over the globe.
