"Beethovens zehn Violinsonaten"

Konzerteinführung zu den Konzerten 9.1 - 9.3

Ludwig van Beethovens zehn Violinsonaten sind geprägt von Plötzlichkeit rhythmischen Wechsels, Einfallsüberraschungen und einer „Sträubigkeit“, die jedes glatte Herunterspielen verhindern. Sie zeigen auch, wie er die Aufgabe „Violinsonate“ mit der gewaltigen Kreutzersonate abschloss, die er gleichsam als Doppelkonzert von Pianoforte und Violine verstand. Die späte Sonate op. 96 erscheint wie eine ferne Erinnerung an diese für Beethoven schon gewissermaßen erledigte Form und eröffnet den Blick ins Reich seines Spätwerks.

"Beethoven und die Viola?"

Eine Einführung zum Viola, Viola!-Konzert

Ein einzigartiges Violinkonzert, ein ganzer Strauß von Sonaten-Meisterwerken für Violine und Violoncello – und wo sind sie, die großen Viola-Werke aus der Feder des Bratschers Beethovens? Ja, richtig gelesen, Beethoven war in der Bonner Hofkapelle als Bratscher angestellt. Und dennoch hat er die Nachwelt nicht mit bedeutenden Solowerken für die Viola beschenkt. Dr. Norbert Gertsch (G. Henle Verlag) berichtet: Man muss schon etwas tiefer graben, um als Bratscher bei ihm fündig zu werden…
