Mendelssohn Piano Trio presents

Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary Concert
featuring faculty members of the Messiah University, Penn State University, Gettysburg College, as well as Stuart Malina and Members  of the Harrisburg Symphony

This program celebrates Beethoven’s 250th anniversary by exploring three of his most lighthearted works. The “Gassenhauer” Trio, Woodwind Quintet and Septet offer a unique window into the mind of a young genius on a journey from absorbing classical style of Haydn and Mozart to transcending its boundaries. The inventive brilliance, youthful energy and humor of these works were met with enthusiastic admiration of Viennese public. They also laid foundation for Beethoven’s immortal later masterpieces that changed the course of music history.  – Peter Sirotin
