The Complete Beethoven Sonatas IV: The Tempest and Contrapuntal Caprices

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a free digital video presentation. Freewill offerings are appreciated. At the specified showtime, the concert may be viewed on this page or across our social media platforms. All concerts are pre-recorded in Saint Thomas Church in compliance with recommendations from the CDC and Episcopal Diocese of New York at the time of the recording. Events are “premiered” at a specified time and available on-demand for a limited time after the premiere.

32@32, created by 2009 American Pianists Awards winner Adam Golka on the occasion of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday celebration, is an 8-concert series surveying the master’s complete Piano Sonatas. The free concerts offer a comprehensive journey through the composer’s most prolific musical form, spanning 27 years of groundbreaking creation and his triumph over hearing loss, and Adam Golka’s performances of the cycle will be juxtaposed with 32 short films exploring the relevance of each of Beethoven’s masterpieces to our modern existence. In collaboration with filmmaker Zac Nicholson, audiences will witness Adam’s video conversations with a plethora of special guests, among them musical legends, visual artists, literary scholars, spiritual teachers, as well as an ear surgeon, an astrophysicist, and even a child.
