Enjoy a fascinating talk on the lives and music of great composers from your home – the perfect pairing for an afternoon tea! Hosted by Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte, each online Talk and Tea presentation accompanies an HPO concert this season. With intriguing stories and musical examples throughout, these entertaining talks offer insights into the works you’ll hear our musicians perform in our Concert Hall Series.
In this episode, Abigail offers insights into April’s The Joy of Beethoven.
From his first professional performance of Beethoven to being appreciated by Tchaikovsky late in his life, Edvard Grieg’s life and music documents Norway’s entrance to the international music scene. Grieg’s legacy influenced composers in the following century, such as Béla Bartók, who were trying to establish a national music sound of their own. This Talk and Tea features the HPO String Quartet as well as a special sneak peek into rehearsal as our string quartet prepares Grieg’s String Quartet No. 2 in F Major.
