Help us celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday

calendar icon15 Sep 2020    

Graduate students from the Glenn Korff School of Music are celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a concert of youthful and lesser known works by the master at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28.

Due to the pandemic, no live audiences are allowed in any of our recital halls, but a majority of our performances will be live webcast. Tune in to the GKSOM website for the concert at https://arts.unl.edu/music to see and hear the live music. Five pieces on the program include four works with WoO numbers, or works without opus numbers, which were composed generally before Beethoven began using opus numbers to identify his compositions. A quartet of trombones, a duo for viola and cello, a solo piano piece, three “Irish” Songs, and a movement of a violin sonata will follow a brief presentation by GKSOM Professor Emeritus Pamela Starr on the life of Beethoven.
