Description: Beethoven swept across the face of music like a hurricane passing over a gentle neighborhood, leaving it transformed beyond recognition, with his series of violin sonatas. His take on the classical form turned the traditional approach on its head, with piano and violin switching between melody and accompaniment, discoursing contrapuntally, and even assuming a concerto-like manner. Violinist Leonidas Kavakos and pianist Enrico Pace bring to life this genre-changing series in a program that includes his beguiling and popular "Spring" Sonata.
Venue Description: One of the most famous performance spaces in the world, and where the biggest orchestras in the world play when they come to New York City. They also offer neighborhood concerts throughout the year, tours of the historic halls, music programming, festivals, and more.
