Event has already taken place
The Moonlight Sonata in twilight – an event that looks like a thought. When the player is out of vision, the experience becomes quite different. Try it yourself! The first of the concert’s three Beethoven sonatas is performed in subdued light, the second in a dark hall by Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, blind from birth.
The concert opens with the Moonlight Sonata, composed as early as 1801 and with the famous melancholic melody that makes us lift off the ground. The Waldstein Sonata is completely different, musical dynamite from Beethoven’s middle period and breathtakingly virtuosic!
A composer’s life in three sonatas reach its end with Piano Sonata No 31, composed during the sickness year of 1821, when Beethoven was bedridden with both rheumatic fever and jaundice. This remarkable and transcendental sonata is performed in subdued light with Katrine Gislinge at the piano.
The piano sonatas are woven together by chamber music with musicians from the multi-faceted Esbjerg Ensemble.
Point Music Festival is conducted with the support of the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture.
