06-02-19 Beethoven at the Breakers - WCRI’s Festival Series featuring The Newport Music Festival

June 3rd, 2019

In this program WCRI host Mike Maino and The Newport Music Festivals Executive Director Pamela Pantos continue to preview the Newport Music Festival 2019 Season. In today's show they discuss Beethoven at the Breakers to be performed at The Breakers Tuesday, July 9 @ 8:00 pm. Colloquially known as “Appassionata”, Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 23 was written as the artist’s hearing was in a state of rapid decline. It is one of the three famous piano sonatas of his middle period. At one performance of this dynamic piece, Beethoven is said to have had a technician on hand to remove the broken strings that would accumulate during the piece’s explosive finale. For more information on the Newport Music Festival or to purchase tickets to one of their concerts visit newportmusic.org or call 401-849-0700.
