Why You'll Love This Concert

We open our first-ever digital concert series with two masterworks, both showcasing the beauty of improvisation.

Performed by renowned French pianist François Dumont, the two works aren’t commonly played together. They were chosen during these unique times due to their visionary nature.

About the Piano Masterpieces

Beethoven’s emblematic work – “Moonlight” Sonata – is known as his Fifth Symphony, or as the Ode to Joy! It could be thought of as one of the greatest improvisations, as the relatively short piece explores the highs and lows of human feeling.

Chopin rarely liked to perform in front of large crowds, making his work a particularly fitting choice to be enjoyed in the intimacy of your home. While the Four Ballades were surely influenced by the poet Mickiewicz, the music is not programmatic, leaving room for creativity and inspiration to take hold.

This free digital concert includes an introduction by Ransom Wilson and an interview with François Dumont.
