Pianist to perform Beethoven sonatas

On Friday, March 10, music professor emeritus Philip Adamson will complete an ambitious project — public performance of the entire collection of Ludwig van Beethoven’s piano sonatas. This recital will feature the three sonatas he has not yet played in recital: Sonata in C Minor, Op. 13; Sonata in C Major, Op. 2, No. 3; and Sonata in C Minor, Op. 2, No. 3.

Hear these works in SoCA’s intimate performance hall played on one of the best concert grand pianos in Windsor. The recital will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. East.

Over his career, Dr. Adamson has performed across Canada and in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe, and has been heard frequently on CBC radio. He taught for many years at the University of Windsor, from which he has recently retired.

Proceeds from this concert will go toward music scholarships for incoming piano students. Tickets are $25, with a student rate of $10. Buy tickets on the SoCA website.
