It's all in the family at Café Classico
It will be a family affair on stage at Rose Gellert Hall this weekend, as Joel Stobbe, cello, Karl Stobbe, violin, and Betty Suderman, piano, give an all-Beethoven performance on Sunday, April 22.
This Café Classico concert will take place at 3 p.m., followed by a post-concert coffee and commentary by Elizabeth Bergmann at 4 p.m.
“Beethoven’s last trio, dedicated to the amateur musician and benefactor, Archduke Rudolph, is a fantastic example of the epic proportions and wonderful lyricism found in so much of his music,” said Bergmann, artistic director, concerts for LCMS.
“The monumental work, which is the longest piano trio by Beethoven, was premiered when he was deaf.
“Apparently, he played so loudly that the strings and keys rattled and jingled and some of the quiet passages were not heard at all.
“Come and hear a modern day trio interpret this inspiring music, we promise our beautiful Steinway piano won’t be rattling and shaking.”
Tickets are available for $15 adults, $13 seniors and $10 students. Call the box office for tickets at 604-534-2848. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 Street in Langley.
