Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is

Description of the concert

Beethoven Marathon is becoming one of the brightest events of the Sochi Festival chamber program for the second time. Eleven instrumental chamber cycles by the great Viennese classic – from the early sonatas dedicated to the great Haydn to the monumental Hammerklavier with its magnificent final fugue – depict the evolution of the piano and chamber music of the great genius.

Well recognizable and widely admired pieces (Moonlight Sonata, Tempest, Second cello sonata) will be performed alongside with less known works (Nocturne for viola and piano, Serenade for flute and piano, violin sonatas). A wide-scale panorama of Beethoven’s music art will unfold in front of the audience, featuring the traditions of the Viennese classicism and the revolutionary approach which anticipated the revelations of the romanticism.

Beethoven sonatas will be performed by young Russian musicians – laureates of international competitions, fellowship holders, and soloists of the St. Petersburg Music House. These are pianists Elizaveta Ukrainskaya, Nikita Kozhevnikov, Timofey Dolya, Sergey Redkin; violinists Anna Savkina, Leonid Zheleznyi, Ravil Islyamov; cellists Vasilyi Stepanov and Kamil Mukhametdinov; violist Andrey Usov; flutist Adelina Tazieva.
