Reactions to the Record

The Reactions to the Record series of symposia, seminars, and concerts at Stanford explores performance through recordings and historical practice. For this all-Beethoven program presented in conjunction with The Beethoven Project, Stanford Music faculty members George Barth, Kumaran Arul, Scott St. John, Stephen Harrison, Wendy Hillhouse, Sharon Wei, Robin Sharp, and Debra Fong will re-create a typical 19th-century chamber program, including a wide array of arrangements for chamber ensembles and voice made by Beethoven or appearing contemporaneously. The program will include arrangements of Piano Concerto No. 4 (piano sextet), Symphony No. 2 (piano trio), Egmont, Op. 84 (piano solo), and Sonata Op. 13 (string quartet), as well as Beethoven’s arrangements of Scottish and Irish songs and the Cello Sonata Op. 69 performed on period instruments.
