Free Concert Series – Hammerklavier
December 10, 2013 12 – 1 p.m. Still in his 20s, Bulgarian pianist Stefan Chaplikov fearlessly scales the Mount Everest of piano sonatas: Beethoven’s monumental No. 29 in B-flat Major, Op. 106, the “Hammerklavier.” While the sheer scale of this work, to say nothing of its technical and intellectual demands, daunts pianists twice his age, Chaplikov embraces its challenges and rewards with a passion and authority belying his years.
