Virtual Lecture Recital by Stefan Litwin

Join the MPIEA – NYU Center for Language, Music and Emotion (CLaME) for a lecture-recital by renowned composer, pianist and professor of music Stefan Litwin.

Inside, Outside, Private, Public — Social Spaces in Beethoven's Piano Sonata in A Major, op. 101

The Piano Sonata No. 28 in A Major, op. 101, marks the beginning of what is commonly referred to as Beethoven’s late style. Composed during the Vienna Congress in 1814-1815 and published shortly thereafter, this work can be heard not only as ‘purely' musical, but also as a kind of social commentary. In his online lecture-recital for CLaME, pianist and composer Stefan Litwin will uncover some of the sonata’s politically relevant layers and demonstrate how Beethoven changed his approach to composition.
