Kevin Wang Performs Beethoven's Piano Sonata no.1

Friday, June 14th ~ 7 pm

Kevin wang begins the canonized sonatas of Beethoven this June!


Join us this June for another enthralling evening in our concert series with Kevin Wang, as we continue to explore Beethoven's vast sonata repertoire. This month features the fiery and impassioned Sonata in F minor, Op. 2 No. 1, a piece that, despite its popularity among students, stands as a testament to Beethoven’s early compositional genius.



🎹 Exploring the Depths of Beethoven’s First Sonata:

Beethoven's Sonata in F minor, Op. 2 No. 1, is more than just an educational staple—it's a profound expression of youthful determination and an early sign of the composer’s break from classical constraints. Dedicated to Joseph Haydn, this sonata diverges boldly from Haydn’s lighter style, embracing a darker and more intense musical narrative that hints at the dramatic innovations Beethoven would bring to classical music. The sonata’s symphonic four-movement structure and its iconic upward motifs serve as a thematic anchor for the evening, connecting with other selected works that mirror this dynamic musical figure.



🎹 Kevin Wang: A Conductor of Musical Narratives:

Known for his sensitive and insightful interpretations, Kevin Wang brings a fresh perspective to this well-loved work. As a celebrated pianist and graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Kevin’s performances are praised for their depth and emotional resonance. This program, described by Kevin as his most ambitious yet, promises to be a significant exploration of musical motifs and their powerful impact across various compositions.



Prepare to be captivated by an evening of bold contrasts and musical exploration, featuring a sonata that embodies the fiery spirit of a young Beethoven poised to redefine the boundaries of classical music. This concert is an ideal opportunity for both newcomers and seasoned aficionados to experience the depth and breadth of Beethoven's genius as interpreted by one of today's most engaging classical artists.
