Dates and times
Between 1809 and 1820, Beethoven wrote well over 100 piano trio arrangements of Scottish, Irish and Welsh folk songs, commissioned by Edinburgh collector and publisher George Thomson. Two centuries later, those Scottish-based compositions are reunited here with their Gaelic ancestry, in an exclusive preview of a German/Scottish/Austrian project planned for Beethoven's 250th anniversary in 2020. Featuring two Gaelic and two classical singers - Màiri MacInnes, Michael Klevenhaus, Lorna Anderson and Jamie MacDougall – together with pipers Allan MacDonald and Thomas Zöller, and TrioVanBeethoven, Vienna, the performance will shed fascinating new light on both Beethoven’s artistry, and the music that inspired him.
