Beethoven Odyssey I

From Feb 27 until June 17 2016, Tamami will be performing the entire cycle of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas. Beethoven's piano sonatas were written over the course of his entire career as a composer. Infinitely inventive, they represent one of the most important collections of music ever written.  These performances offer audiences a rare opportunity to hear these sonatas live and as a complete series.  Hearing them in chronological order also offers a unique perspective on how Beethoven's style evolved from his earliest youthful exuberance, through his heroic middle period, and on to his visionary late period.
