Hilary Hahn and Andreas Haefliger

Among the finest Beethoven performers, world-famous violinist Hilary Hahn and pianist Andreas Haefliger will be the protagonists of the concert focusing on Beethoven’s “Sonatas” for violin and piano.

Universally considered a virtuoso of this instrument, the American violinist Hilary Hahn has won three Grammy Awards and numerous other awards. She is best known for her performances around the world both as a soloist with major orchestras and conductors and as a recitalist, and is also known as a champion of contemporary music.

After attending the Juilliard School in New York, the Swiss pianist Andreas Haflinger, who grew up in Germany, begins playing with major orchestras both in the United States and in Europe. In his 30 years as a concert pianist his reputation has continued to grow.

The program of Hilary Hahn and Andreas Haefliger includes:

  • Ludwig van Beethoven, Sonata No. 9 in A major, Op. 47 ‘Kreutzer
  • Ludwig van Beethoven, Sonata No. 10 in G major, Op. 96

Beethoven’s last two violin sonatas are performed by two of today’s best soloists, here working as a duo. The “Kreutzer” sonata was written in 1803 for the Afro-Polish violinist George Bridgetower, with whom the composer later had falling out. This talented Black performer spent most of his life in England and died in Peckham in 1860. Eventual dedicatee Rodolphe Kreutzer never played the piece. Written for the virtuoso Philippe Rode, the work “Op. 96” (1812) marks a point at which Beethoven’s late style might be said to begin.
