Written at the end of the 18th century, the opening of Beethoven’s ‘Pathetique’ Sonata continues to impress today for its dramatic power. 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 Schubert’s crowning achievements. Johann Strauss’ famous ‘Blue Danube’ Waltz provides the dashing conclusion to this program which also includes popular works by Brahms, Rachmaninoff and the thrilling Chopin Ballade in G minor.
