Hershey Felder: Beethoven - A Recording of the Live Streamed Musical Event
About Hershey Felder: Beethoven
Based on Dr. Gerhard von Breuning’s factual “Aus dem Schwarzspanierhaus,” Hershey Felder brings Ludwig van Beethoven to life through the eyes of the Viennese Doctor Breuning who spent his boyhood by the Maestro’s side.
Described by American Theatre Magazine as “a seductive portraitist, compelling storyteller, and superb concert pianist,” Hershey Felder portrays both Beethoven and Dr. Gerhard von Breuning, the young boy who cared for him in the last years of his life. Felder’s profound musical understanding brings this legend to life, offering an enthralling performance that can satisfy musical experts, as well as captivate audience members with little background in classical music. Featuring some of the composer’s greatest works, from the Moonlight Sonata and Pathétique Sonata to selections from the 5th and 9th Symphonies, Hershey Felder’s Beethoven is an intense, illuminating, unforgettable journey through time that immerses audiences in the astounding life of Ludwig van Beethoven.
Recommended for ages 10+.
