Violinist Kai Gleusteen and pianist Catherine Ordronneau are dear friends of ArtSpring, having performed here every summer for many years and served as faculty with our annual Chamber Music Festival. They will present all 10 Beethoven violin sonatas over three days, accompanied by Kai’s informative and engaging narrative introductions. Think of it as concentrated essence of Beethoven. Just add water and stir for a heady draught of music from the greatest composer of all time. (This event is proudly supported by Carol Brown.)
