250 years of Beethoven
Serenades of Beethoven and other beautiful work

In 2020 we will celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th year of birth and that is why there must of course be a program devoted to this great composer. We are happy to let you hear Beethoven’s Serenade op. 8 for string trio and an adaptation of a slightly later Serenade for flute, viola and harp. The program is further complemented by Beethoven’s predecessor Domenico Scarlatti and Beethoven’s contemporaries Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Louis Spohr.

Ami Maayani – arr. of Beethoven’s Serenade op. 25, for flute, viola and harp
Louis Spohr – Fantasy, for harp solo
