ARTEK: Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert - for Voices & Fortepiano
On Saturday, April 21, 2012 8PM, members of ARTEK perform music of Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert at All Saints’ Church, 16 All Saints’ Road, Princeton, NJ. Four outstanding artists (Laura Heimes, soprano, Michael Brown, tenor; Peter Becker, bass-baritone; and ARTEK director Gwendolyn Toth, fortepiano) will perform the Sonata in E minor, Hob. XVI:34 and the dramatic cantata Arianna auf Naxos by Franz Joseph Haydn (1756-1791); the song cycle An die Ferne Geliebte by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) and lieder by Franz Schubert (1797-1828). Ms. Toth will perform on a historical copy of an original 18th-century piano by Anton Walter, known today as a fortepiano, identical to the instrument owned by Mozart. The concert will last approximately 90 minutes.
