Beethoven’s Complete Sonatas for Cello and Piano

This first concert of the year at Rivers Conservatory will feature highly-acclaimed chamber musicians Lois Shapiro (piano) and Ron Lowry (cello), as a Music for Food concert to benefit A Place to Turn. The program presents a rare opportunity to hear all five Beethoven cello sonatas in one afternoon. In Shapiro’s words, “Many consider Beethoven to have been a visionary who transformed the way we engage the musical experience. His music inspires us all to take risks and think ‘outside the box’ . . . His five remarkably diverse cello sonatas span his entire compositional output, and thereby afford an extraordinary overview of his evolving compositional process.”
