Beethoven, Schumann and Chopin revolutionized piano repertoire and performance technique. In his monumental cycle of 32 piano sonatas. Beethoven treated the piano as a powerful instrument capable of competing with an orchestra. Robert Schumann created his own intimate Romantic world, introducing fleeting images with almost kaleidoscopic speed. Chopin, “the poet of the piano”, combined great emotional contrasts with classical structures. Enjoy famous works such as Beethoven’s “Pathetique” Sonata, Schumann’s “Kreisleriana” and Chopin’s Ballades and Nocturnes in the instructor’s unique blend of lecture and piano performance.
