Beethoven Rediscovered

Beethoven’s translation of his fourth piano concerto resulted in a fascinating atmospheric transposition of orchestral sound by a string quintet. This unpublished version was recently discovered and it now received its first Winnipeg performance, as does Chopin’s own chamber version of his second piano concerto. Also making a Winnipeg debut is the brilliant young Canadian pianist, Sheng Cai. With charismatic flair, he epitomizes the greatness of a romantic virtuoso “with bravura, lucidity, color and power” (Birmingham News). “He is a talent that puts Canada on the map.” (Barrie Examiner).

Programme:  Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major. Op. 58 Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, Schumann Toccata in C major, Op. 7, and two sonatas by Scarlatti (solo piano).
