Beethoven’s 250th birthday celebrations started in 2020 and haven’t stopped yet! Proclaiming Beethoven’s genius is always in order and this concert delivers the best of the best.

The bagatelle “genre” was a Ludwig favorite, so naturally we’ll include a few of his own, along with those of Couperin, Ligeti, Kapustin, and Santa Cruz’s very own Jon Scoville. For even more variety, the concert includes a rarely performed gem for wind quintet by Jean Françaix, and concludes with Beethoven’s Wind & Piano Quintet.

As a master of unconventionality in both his music and personality, we know Ludwig would applaud our unusual programming!
