Beethoven on the Bluff - Piano Trios II
The three Opus 1 piano trios were first performed in 1793, but Beethoven polished them for two more years before publication. He had written much music already, but he wanted to save this important designation for his best work up to that time. The three trios show a remarkable diversity and depth of emotion and many strokes of genius. The Duquesne Piano Trio will present them as a whole, as Beethoven intended.
Time: 7:30 pm
PNC Recital Hall, School of Music, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA

Zimmermann & de Perrot
FRIDAY SOLD OUT. With a great deal of mischief but at the same time anger and depth, the duo Zimmermann & de Perrot present a disconcertingly original marriage of theatre, circus and dance. Supported by five circus artists and dancers, these two directors, who now enjoy dazzling success, have far exceeded all expectations in their new work. The stage design, which revolves on a horizontal axis, forces the performers into the most unlikely positions. All this is put at the service of a caustic story, which makes Hans was Heiri a work that has broken down barriers among the public to an extent rarely seen.
