Eroica – the unforgettable sound of the fortepiano

22. 5. | 20.00 | Klementinum Mirror Chapel

The chamber music concert presenting Petra Matějová and her brilliant fortepiano performance will have the hallmark of a modern-day premiere. The fortepiano used to be considered a musical instrument that was not afraid to “replace” a symphony orchestra. Several hundreds of chamber music arrangements of L. van Beethoven’s famous symphonies were made already during his lifetime. Some are very good, just like Riese’s arrangement that we will bring to life. Our program will also include the music of Beethoven’s younger Czech contemporary J. V. H. Tomášek, whose piano quartet will be played in this modern-day premiere.

J. V. H. Tomášek: Piano Quartet G Minor
L. van Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 –EROICA (a piano quartet in Riese’s period chamber music arrangement)

Performed by: Petra Matějová – fortepiano, Musica Florea

The official launch of Petra Matějová’s new CD (the world premiere of three sonatas of V.  Tomášek on a CD) will be a part of the concert.
