Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” and the Music of Dvorak

CANCELLED

Dear Audience Members.

As you all will no doubt have gathered, we have had to cancel the concert tentatively scheduled for June 6. The continuing restriction in BC to gatherings of 50 people or less makes this cancellation necessary.

There is still some chance of presenting this wonderful program (Beethoven "Kreutzer" Sonata for Piano and Violin, Dvorak Piano Trio in f minor) at some point in the Fall. We will all just have to wait and see what the COVID 19 situation is in September.

Options for ticket holders for this concert (originally scheduled for April 5) are:

  1. Hang on to your tickets and use them in the Fall, should we still be able to go ahead with this program.
  2. If we are not able to go ahead with a Fall concert your ticket can be used for any of our 2021 concerts.
  3. Consider donating the cost of your April 5 ticket to West Coast Chamber Music. Our organization, along with every other arts group, has of course been negatively impacted by this crisis.
  4. Apply for a refund. Email westcoastchambermusic@hotmail.com or call 604-879-9959.

Be well Everybody and let's all keep our hopes up that the situation will continue to improve and that we will all be able to look forward to a full Performing Arts season in Vancouver during the coming year.

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.
