As the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth approaches, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts will present “Dinnerstein/Haimovitz: Beethoven/Glass” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9, in the Bram Goldsmith Theater at The Wallis
A pre-concert conversation will be moderated by Classical KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen before the concert at 6:30 pm and includes a complimentary glass of wine.
Pianist Simone Dinnerstein and cellist Matt Haimovitz will perform a musical celebration pairing Beethoven’s works with music from contemporary composer Philip Glass. The program includes Beethoven’s Cello Sonatas Nos. 1 and 2, Op. 102, and Glass’ “Partita 2 for Solo Cello” and “Mad Rush for Solo Piano.”
“Simone Dinnerstein and Matt Haimovitz have consistently pursued innovative project-oriented work throughout their independent careers,” said Paul Crewes, artistic director for The Wallis. “It is particularly notable that they have joined together for this unique musical project, which showcases both their collaborative and solo artistry through the lens of Beethoven and his continuing influence today.”
The performance runs 85 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.
“Their 21st-century celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday is very much in line with Paul’s artistic intent for The Wallis, which embraces the boldly unexpected and often reveals connections within the arts in new and surprising ways,” said Rachel Fine, CEO and executive director for The Wallis.
Tickets range from $33 to $99 and are on sale online and at the box office.
