PAUL SMITH Solo Piano Recital
Benefit Concert for Contemporary Opera Marin
THE OTHER BEETHOVEN
In Memoriam, Dear Ludwig
Emeritus faculty member Paul Smith presents his annual piano recital to benefit Contemporary Opera Marin and the inaugural concert of this The Other Beethoven, a six-concert series exploring lesser-known or well-known works in unknown versions, to celebrate the 250th birthday of the great master. This year’s program is devoted to works written expressly for Beethoven’s funeral on March 26, 1827, or to raise funds for the memorial statue erected in Bonn to commemorate his 75th birthday.
