The Age of Reason produced the art of symmetry, balance and proportion, manifested in the works of three greatest classical era composers – Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

Through a combination of lecture and piano performance, you’ll learn about the piano works of the highest order from the late, innovative sonatas by Haydn, to magnificent concertos by Mozart, and prophetic last sonatas by Beethoven. Discover how the composers’ personalities shaped their art, and discuss the influences they had upon each other’s work. Hear the “storm and stress” era expressed strongly in their works and appreciate their virtuosic potential as exercised fully in their piano concertos. The music will be richly illustrated and analyzed in detail.
