Utah Symphony: Beethoven Sonatas

“I am not satisfied with the work I have done so far. From now on I intend to take a new way,” Beethoven is cited as saying in Barry Cooper’s biography. This was upon the maestro’s return to Vienna from Heiligenstadt, which marked a shift toward more “heroic” work—this is known as his “middle” period and includes the third through eighth symphonies, and the “Waldstein” and “Appassionata” piano sonatas. Tonight, principal keyboardist of the Utah Symphony Jason Hardink will perform and discuss Beethoven’s middle sonatas to an intimate 150-person audience on the Abravanel Hall stage. Piano students will especially benefit, but the evening will be informative and enjoyable for all fans of classical music. This is one of three sonata performances/lectures, and this performance is also one of the various events of Utah Symphony’s Celebrating Beethoven Festival, lasting through May 2012; more information can be found at Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 8 p.m., $10
