Beethoven & Pianos: Diabelli Variations

Friday, December 4, 2020 at 12:00pm

Virtual Event

Mike Lee, in collaboration with Cheryl Tan, explores the concept of hybridity in the “Diabelli” Variations, Op. 120, using two kinds of instruments to enact the bipartite compositional history of the work. The event features a complete performance of Op. 120: variations drafted after Beethoven’s in-depth encounter with his new Broadwood are performed on the CCHK’s Broadwood (1799), while those conceived prior to work on the last three sonatas are performed on the Regier-Graf (1824).

Pre-recorded video will be available through Dec. 31 at
