ANNOUNCING A BEETHOVEN-INSPIRED GLOBAL COMMISSIONING PROJECT
32 Bright Clouds: Beethoven Conversations Around the World is a global music-commissioning and performing project, born from a need to respond to current social and political environments in the U.S. and worldwide with a personally meaningful and purposeful musical endeavor. 32 Bright Clouds offerings include special programming in celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
This December Yael Weiss and the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Trio will be recording the second volume of their complete cycle of Beethoven's piano trios for Bridge Records. Adding to their recordings of the "Archduke" and the early G Major trio, this new CD will include the "Ghost" trio, the "Kakadu" Variations and Beethoven's very first published work, the trio in E-flat major.
