Johann Strauss’ famous ‘Blue Danube’ Waltz is the dashing conclusion to this Viennese-inspired program of Beethoven and Schubert
‘A love of piano playing evident from the very first notes.’ The Advertiser
Written at the end of the 18th century, the opening of Beethoven’s ‘Pathétique’ Sonata continues to impress today for its dramatic power and revolutionary qualities. Twenty years later, the ailing Schubert would complete his own Sonata in C minor.
Only months away from his death, this work remains one of his crowning achievements. Johann Strauss’ famous ‘Blue Danube’ Waltz provides the dashing conclusion to this Viennese-inspired program.
