Upsetting the Classical Tradition: Beethoven & the Next 100 Years

March 18, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Alan Wasserman, Classical Piano

Sarasota Music Club welcomes the public to join us for a free concert sure to delight anyone who enjoys hearing a master of the keys!

“Beethoven upsets the Classical tradition by infusing his moods into his music more and more. This leads to Chopin and other composers upending the classical traditions in other ways. Let’s hear music by Beethoven, Chopin, Gottschalk, Joplin, and others as examples of music moving from traditional classical to the modern era!” Alan Wasserman

Wasserman, who enjoys playing in many styles of music, has performed on national and international stages, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. He will share anecdotes and details about personalities, time periods and performance concerns that add a layer of understanding and insight to enhance audience appreciation for even familiar compositions.

The performance will be offered in First Presbyterian Church of Sarasota’s Sanctuary (not in Fellowship Hall, as previously advertised). Socially distanced seating is available, and face masks are required.

The Sanctuary is located straight ahead on Oak Street as you drive towards the church facilities, and parking is available on Oak and lots to the left and right.

Donations help support Sarasota Music Club monthly concerts and fund music scholarships.
