Beethoven Weekend

Christensen gave a breathtaking performance that truly captured the audience and stole the show.' The Creative Issue.
This is a project only rarely undertaken in even the world's musical capitals. These ten pieces cover a good deal of Beethoven's professional life, from a feisty youth to the onset of deafness and the heavenly transcendental peace achieved in the late works.

Our debut season concluded with Glenn Christensen and Stewart Kelly playing the mighty Kreutzer sonata of Beethoven. Four years later, they return to undertake the herculean task of performing all ten of these masterpieces over one weekend. From the sunny joy of the famous 'Spring' to the demonic seventh sonata (one of the most inspired pieces of Beethoven's entire output) and the sadly ignored sixth this will be an unforgettable journey.

To take the journey in close succession is to go on a condensed study of life itself from one of the finest spirits to have ever walked the earth. For the musicians it will be like climbing Everest; exhilarating, exhausting, perhaps a little dangerous and capable of delivering the greatest euphoria. For the audience it should be overwhelmingly moving. I do hope you'll come along for the complete experience.

Christensen is a fulltime member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australia’s finest ensemble and is one of the most highly decorated young violinists this country has produced in decades with more accolades and prizes than could be listed here.
