The Composer In Society - Master or Servant

Andover Music Club

Thursday September 23rd, 2021

7.30

CANCELLED DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS

In our new programme we take a look at familiar figures from a more unusual angle:  Following Beethoven's 250th anniversary year, we ask, was he really the lonely revolutionary genius of the romantic imagination, writing only for posterity?

How did he and his predecessors Haydn and Mozart fit into society, and how did their successors live as society changed in the 19th century?

The Ridgeway Ensemble is joined by violinist Esther King Smith for a programme of chamber music and songs with quotations from letters and contemporary accounts to explore the relationships between composers and their patrons.
