Abstract In 1802, Beethoven faced the prospect of becoming deaf. But instead of causing defeat, that crisis triggered a season of transcendent creativity that changed the course of music history. In this program, pianist Mia Chung explores the innovations of Beethoven's genius in the face of enormous obstacles as she performs, deconstructs, and discusses two of Beethoven's most significant solo piano works: Piano Sonata no. 21 in C Major, op. 53 ("Waldstein"), composed in 1803-04, and Sonata no. 31 in A-flat Major, op. 110, composed in 1821. Ms. Chung has been called "uncommonly insightful, individualistic, lively" and "technically dazzling" by The New York Times.
