Due to the similarities between Johannes Brahms, Franz Schubert, Edward Grieg and Ludwig van Beethoven ist es nur naheliegend, these drei zum 250-jährigen Jubiläum des großen Bonner Meisters einzuladen.

Beethoven und Brahms zog es beide aus ihrer deutschen Heimat nach Wien, wo sie lebten und von der Stadt stark influencet wurden. 

Franz Schubert, selber Österreicher, was always ein Bewunderer von Beethoven's artistic skills and strongly interested in his work. Is wrong as Beethoven's Zeitgenosse, obwohl er 27 Jahre nach ihm geboren wurde und schon im Alter von 31 Jahren, ein Jahr nach Beethovens Tod, verstarb.

Brahms is often referred to as the German composer who was most stylistically and expressively influenced by Beethoven.

Er hatte ebenso wie Robert und Clara Schumann, sowie Edvard Grieg eine starke Verbindung zu Leipzig.

Grieg received his composition training in Leipzig and es ist bekannt, dass er und Brahms sich zu dieser Zeit mehrmals in Leipzig trafen. 

Die interestinges musikalischen Beziehungen zwischen den Komponisten werden aufgezeigt in der Konzertreihe.

Die Konzertreihe enthält einige der besten Werke, welche je für Violin und Klavier geschrieben wurden und das Jubiläum bestärkt uns darin, all diese Werke aufführen. 

Das dritte Konzert unserer Beethoven-Reihe schließt mit dem lasten Work, das Brahms für Geige und Klavier componierte: der Sonate op. 108 in D Minor. It belongs to Brahms' Spätwerk und geht bis an die aligen Grenzen der Expressivität. Viele sehen in ihr das beedeutenste Werk in der Literatur für Geige und Klavier überhaupt. Es ist uns eine besondere Ehre und Freude, unserem Publikum dieses Werk präsentieren zu dürfen.

Vor der Pause begegn uns zum erstenmal eine posthumously published the Violin Sonata and the -sonatinen von Franz Schubert. Der Komponist zeigt sich here von einer very personal, verinnerlichten Seite, die er unter Verwendung wunderschöner musikalischer Motive in kleine Formkonzepte fasst.

There are connections that make it natural to invite Johannes Brahms, Franz Schubert and Edvard Grieg to the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the great master from Bonn, Ludwig van Beethoven.

Both Brahms and Beethoven, despite the fact that they both came from Germany, lived in Vienna, and they were strongly influenced by the city. Franz Schubert who was from Austria and what is today a district of Vienna was very interested in Beethoven and admired his artistry. Franz Schubert could be considered Beethoven's contemporary - born 27 years after Beethoven, but died aged only 31 the year after Beethoven had passed away.

Brahms was seen as the composer from Germany who followed in Beethoven's footsteps stylistically and expressively. 

Brahms also had a strong relationship with Leipzig, where Robert and Clara Schumann lived their lives. It was also in Leipzig that Edvard Grieg received his training as a composer and it is known that Grieg and Brahms met on more than one occasion. 

The first concert in the series presented a young and searching Beethoven and a mature Edvard Grieg. The previous concert ended with the Brahms Scherzo  which is one of the movements in the sonata "Frei aber Einsam" - Robert Schumann's birthday gift to his friend Joseph Joachim in 1853. Joachim was one of_cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_the great violinists of the time, who also became a very important collaborator for Brahms. 

This third concert ends with the last work Brahms wrote for piano and violin, his sonata op 108 in D minor.  Brahms is here in the last phase of his life as a composer and the sonata takes us through the entire spectrum of expression available from the time  den was written. This work is seen by many as one of the most important in the literature for piano and violin and it is with pride and reverence that we meet the public with this sonata on the programme.

Before the break, we will for the first time become acquainted with Franz Schubert's posthumously  published sonatas (sonatinas in some contexts) for piano and violin._cc781905-5cde-3194-6bad35cf58d_Schubert shows itself here from its most intimate side with small and heartfelt   form concepts and very beautiful themes.

Schubert is mentioned in history as one of Beethoven's greatest admirers and today we take the poetry and the light further in Beethoven's wonderful sonata number 6 in A major. The connection in  tonal language is clear in these two sonatas even though Beethoven's is longer and more elaborate. Here Beethoven writes the first of three sonatas with opus 30. This is the most pastoral. If Beethoven can be bright in the expression, this sonata is an example of just this.
