Beethoven cycle, November 2008 until March 2009 at Theater in Kempten
Getting to know a man of genius
Kempten theatre. With a new series of concerts the pianist Ingmar Schwindt wants to make the audience familiar with Beethoven - first part on November 6th, 2008
"Beethoven is an enormously versatile personality",
says Ingmar Schwindt. On the occasion of his concert cycle
"Beethoven@night" in Kempten's theatre TiK the 31-year-old concert
pianist Ingmar Schwindt would like to give the listeners an understanding of
the great classical composer. "Playing the pieces won't be the only
thing I'll do. I am also going to give
introductions and explanations to the works", says Schwindt.
Schwindt thinks that
Beethoven's sonatas contain the key to understanding the artist's
development. That's why they are the centerpiece of his cycle, which is partly
financed by Bavarian government funds. "For most people Beethoven suggests
words like wild, sullen or morose, however
he could be very humerous" - another thing which Schwindt is going
to demonstrate in his series of concerts.
It is the dialectics of this man of genius (who, according
to Schwindt, was extremely sensitive
and rebellious,but also sad and lonely) that the pianist wants to present
in his five concerts.
In the musuem for musical intruments GRASSI in Leipzig Schwindt assisted
in a concert in memory of Robert Schumann ("Rekonstruktion eines
Gedenkkonzertes für Robert Schumann"), which was organized on the occasion
of Schumann's 15Oth day of death by the Museum of musical intruments and the associations
