Faculty Recital: Victor Rosenbaum's Beethoven

| New England Conservatory: Jordan Hall

Pianist Victor Rosenbaum marks 50 years of teaching at NEC with an all-Beethoven program.

Rosenbaum and Russell Sherman, also celebrating his 50th teaching anniversary, have gathered two completely different selections from Beethoven's 32 sonatas. Rosenbaum has chosen the early "Funeral March" sonata along with the much later 27th and 31st sonata and set of bagatelles. Both pianists perform the 27th sonata, affording an opportunity to experience two different outlooks on the same score.

Please come back for Russell Sherman's Beethoven on October 15.

Welcome to NEC at 150! Every generation of musicians remake and change New England Conservatory. Some, like Gunther Schuller, continue to influence our music beyond their lifetimes. Others contribute for decades, pushing the sense of what's possible by their own examples. The entire season is stuffed with chances to see the NEC legacy in exceptional, infectious, passionate action. Don't miss them!
