Beethoven 250 with Finghin Collins, Claire Duff and Sarah McMahon

Saturday, 28 November 2020, 7.20pm

One of Ireland’s most prominent concert pianists, Finghin Collins makes a rare foray into period instrument performance in this special online concert from Ardee Baroque Festival. Collins teams up with two of the members of the Irish Baroque Orchestra, violinist Claire Duff and cellist Sarah McMahon, to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary in a very special way – by performing three of the composer’s early works on period instruments.

Cello sonata Op. 5 No. 1 (1796)
Violin sonata Op. 12 No. 1 (1798)
Piano trio Op. 11 (1797) Gassenhauer Trio

For this concert, Finghin will perform on a 1994 copy by Paul Poletti of a Walter fortepiano. Anton Walter was an exact contemporary of both Mozart and Beethoven. It will be fascinating to travel back in time and hear this music as it might have sounded more than two centuries ago.
