Welcome to our exciting new concert series, guaranteed to resonate with you in every way. It checks all the boxes for classical music fans!
What’s on?
Our first-ever Artist-in-Residence Stewart Goodyear (“a phenomenon” ~Los Angeles Times; “one of the best pianists of his generation” ~Philadelphia Inquirer) solos in all five brilliant Beethoven piano concertos…in just three concerts. Do not miss this rare happening!
What to listen for?
From the three crashing chords with which the pianist announces himself in the Third Concerto to the intimate “conversation” between soloist and orchestra in the Fourth, to the regal ”Emperor” Concerto—a crowning achievement. And if that weren’t enough, Stewart will up the stakes by improvising the cadenzas on the spot in the first four concertos.
Beethoven 360:
Stewart enthuses: “Performing these concertos gets me into the public side of Beethoven—great theatre, great drama, great virtuosity, and, most importantly, great merriment. These pieces show him as entertainer, actor, storyteller, and playwright. To me, these concertos are pursuits of unbridled joy.”
The “Olympics” at RESONATE:
These pianistic feats (yes, feats!) require intelligence, amazing memory, focus, and just plain stamina. “Mentally and physically, I train like an Olympic athlete…lots of repetition, and building muscle memory in my fingers, so that by the time I rehearse and perform, my focus will be on an organic collaboration between conductor, orchestra, and audience,” says Stewart.
Breathe!
You’ll need it! After each breathtaking Orchestra Concert, mix and mingle with fellow concertgoers (bar service available) before heading to the Palmer Room for music that’s up close and personal.
Getting intimate:
After the break, it’s beguiling chamber music, including the “Ghost” piano trio, sublime sonatas, the cheery Septet, and, in the solo spotlight, Stewart plays the “Moonlight” Sonata, “Für Elise,” and more.
You MUST be there!
