Workshop for pianists and violinists

(part of Beethoven piano and violin sonatas project)

As part of their series exploring the complete sonatas for piano and violin by Beethoven, violinist Savitri Grier and pianist Richard Uttley host a workshop for young and adult amateur musicians.

Solo pianists, solo violinists, and violinists and pianists playing together are invited. The music played need not be by Beethoven, but pieces from around the same time or in some way influenced by Beethoven would be preferred.

There is also a talk (at 11:30)  afternoon (13:00) and evening concert (19:30)

These are sold as three seperate ticketed events  but if you book both concerts and the workshop a discount is available.

To get the discount please book each event seperately and the discount will be applied at the check out. The workshop is in our course section.

There is no charge to just observe the workshop.

A second event is scheduled for 21 February 2021.
