Jonathan Biss Lecture

Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas—Conjuring the Infinite

Dec 10

Event Dates

  • Tue Dec 10 6:00 PM


Meany Studio Theatre

In this free lecture, pianist Jonathan Biss guides a musical exploration of Beethoven’s compositional evolution through his piano sonatas, written over three decades, culminating with the other-worldly Opus 109. The miracle of the Beethoven piano sonatas — aside from the sheer quality of the music and the force of Beethoven’s immense personality — lies in the variety of expression. With every sonata, Beethoven reinvents the form and covers new emotional territory.
