A Beethoven Tribute (five-part series)

Susan Waterfall S14 200web“From the heart … to the heart”
Join Susan Waterfall and an array of exceptional Festival musicians for five days of lectures and narrated concerts exploring the life and music of Beethoven, the most influential and consistently popular composer in Western music. Beethoven became the defining archetype of the artist and left us with a body of work unsurpassed in its capacity to exalt, reveal and heal the human condition.

Susan Waterfall’s production of the Beethoven Tribute series is generously sponsored by Thomas Safran.

“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” – Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
