MARITZBURG pianist, Christopher Duigan, will be performing the music of Ludwig van Beethoven at the Tatham Art Gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg at 11.30am on Sunday, 30 October.

He will play three sonatas from the canon of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas that represent each of these periods - the light-hearted Sonata in F Op 10 No 2, the popular Moonlight Sonata Op 27 no 2 and the Sonata in E Op 109.

Music by German romantic composers, who were highly influenced by Beethoven’s legacy, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms, complete the programme.

Beethoven’s musical output is often conveniently divided into three periods. In the first he uses the language of Viennese classicism established by earlier composers, above all Haydn and Mozart, with the emphasis on clarity, restraint and balance.

In the second period he writes with a bolder, more personal tone, often with powerful surges toward moods of triumph, tragedy and transformation.

In the third period, the earlier urgency gives way to moods that have been described as “interior”, “contemplative” and “visionary”.

Tickets for the Tatham concert are R80. Booking is preferred via email at chris@fotag.co.za or by SMS at 083 417 4473 or on WhatsApp. Secure parking is available next to the gallery and the Café Tatham will be open from 10am, and for lunch afterwards.
