Jörg Ulrich Krah und Bernhard Parz: Beethoven – Katzer Contrasts (ACFNY)

Das ACFNY – Austrian Cultural Forum New York  veröffentlichte am 18. November 2020 auf ihrem Youtube – Kanal die Premiere von Jörg Ulrich Krah (Cello) und Berhard Parz (Klavier) mit ihrer Interpretation und Programm von Stücken von Ludwig van Beethoven und Georg Katzer.
Das ACFNY beschreibt das Musikvideo folgend:

 

The program „postscriptum B.“ celebrates the 250th anniversary of Ludwig von Beethoven’s birth and is dedicated to the memory of Georg Katzer (1935-2019).

 

Joerg Ulrich Krah (cello)and Bernhard Parz (piano) present Beethoven’s sonatas for cello and piano, contrasted by Georg Katzer’s „Postscripta to B“. With their interpretation they set new accents and show both Beethoven’s modernity and his different approaches in the different periods of his creative work. The contemporary bridge-building enables new listening approaches and honors the work of two great German composers. Filmed at the Bösendorfer factory in Vienna, this online performance was presented on November 18th at 2PM EST on ACFNY’s website and social medias.
