I recently had the oppurtunity to record Beethoven at the wonderful Snape Maltings Concert Hall. It was founded by composer Benjamin Britten and George Gooderham. It was opened in 1967 by HM Queen Elizabeth. This became the home of the Aldeburgh Festival and a venue internationally renowned for the superb quality of its acoustic.
Sonata op 31 no 3 is one of my favourite works by Beethoven, and to record at such a historic and beautiful venue was a great honour for me!
This is a really cool piece I learnt recently. I recorded this at the Royal College of Music in London (which is where I’m studying). This is the arrangement of the Gypsy Dances from Bizet’s opera Carmen which Horowitz played in his legendary 1968 performance at Carnegie Hall. Enjoy!!!
