Good day on this cloudy Monday.
While Beethoven is perhaps the biggest name in classical music, a group of MSU College of Music faculty is putting the spotlight on some of the musical giant’s lesser known works. Monday’s concert kicks off with Beethoven’s Piano Trio in C Minor, Op. 1 No. 3, featuring guest pianist Rohan de Silva. A native of Sri Lanka, De Silva frequently accompanies violin virtuosi like Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell and is a faculty member at the Juilliard School. The second half of the program is Beethoven’s Septet in E-flat Major, Op. 20., a six-movement piece for strings and winds originally dedicated to Maria Theresa, the first empress of Austria. 7:30 p.m. $15/$12 seniors/$5 students. Fairchild Theatre, 542 Auditorium Road, East Lansing. (517) 353- 5340, music.msu.edu.
