Pianist to usher in return of faculty recitals

Pianist Philip Adamson will mark the return of recitals by faculty of the School of Creative Arts with a performance of sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven in a livestreamed concert on Friday, Oct. 29.

Dr. Adamson, professor emeritus of music, will play the Yamaha grand piano in the Performance Hall of the SoCA Armouries, with an audience watching and listening online. The program will begin at 7:30 p.m.

“The working title (if such there be) seems to be The Fabulous Fifties, inasmuch as the works were all written within a year or two of each other, and were presented to Beethoven's publisher as a package,” Adamson says, noting all the pieces bear catalogue numbers in the 50s.

Tickets are $20 per household and must be purchased in advance. Ticket buyers will receive an email containing the link to watch the concert.
