Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” and the Music of Dvorak

NEW DATE: Saturday June 6, 2020 @ 7:00 PM

With the current COVID 19 crisis we are of course obliged to postpone our April 5 Concert. We are tentatively rescheduling the concert to Saturday June 6, at 7:00 pm, Unitarian Church of Vancouver. We are disappointed to not be able to offer the usual Sunday afternoon time for this program. As a reminder, the program features Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata for Violin and Piano and the Dvorak Trio for Piano and Strings in f minor and is sure to be a fantastic concert. We will be able to confirm a few weeks ahead of June 6 whether or not we will be able to proceed with that date.

Options for ticket holders for April 5:

1. If you are able to attend a June 6 concert, hang on to your April 5 tickets and use them on June 6
2. Hang on to your April 5 ticket and use it for any concert in the 2021 season.
3. Consider donating the cost of your April 5 ticket to West Coast Chamber Music. Our organization, along with every other arts group, is heavily impacted by the current crisis.
4. Apply for a refund. Email westcoastchambermusic@hotmail.com or phone 604-879-9959.

Be well Everybody and let’s all keep our hopes up for a timely end to this crisis.

Concert Notes

One of Beethoven’s masterpieces, the Sonata for Piano and Violin, Op.47, “Kreutzer” is the centerpiece of this concert. A piece of extraordinary virtuosity, power and tremendous scope, it is arguably one of the greatest contributions to the chamber music literature. The beautiful music of Antonin Dvorak offers a pleasing contrast. His Silent Woods for cello and Piano is a heavenly piece, expressive and intimate. We’ll conclude with Dvorak’s Piano Trio No.3 in F minor, Op.65, a monumental masterwork in its own right, and a glorious season finale.
