The Wallis Presents
Beethoven’s Workshop: The Most Beloved Sonatas
with text written by Hershey Felder
In eternal piano sonatas such as the Pathetique, the Moonlight, the Waldstein and the Appassionata, Ludwig Van Beethoven experimented with form and musical storytelling in ways that changed music forever. Step into Beethoven’s Workshop with internationally renowned pianist Ory Shihor as he returns to The Wallis to perform these beloved sonatas and tell their stories.
“Boldly individualistic.” - The New York Times
“Shihor powered through Beethoven's ‘Appassionata’ sonata with a sure sense of line and structure, but was not afraid to take risks--his arm-weighted sforzandos rang out like gunshots, his articulation of Beethoven's inner voices snapped compellingly through the violent roar of the concluding movement, and his acceleration in the coda was exhilaratingly crisp and clean without sacrificing weight.” - The Washington Post
