BEETHOVEN PIANO SONATAS
Gusztáv Fenyő is performing cycles of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas in Scotland and Hungary throughout 2019/2020, in celebration of the composer’s 250th anniversary. Full details here.
Due to Covid-19, programmes 5, 6, 7, 8 of the Beethoven cycle originally scheduled for May, September, October 2020 in Scotland, have been postponed until 2021/22.
We are delighted that live concerts in indoor venues can resume from 17th May 2021. However, since social distancing requirements are too restrictive for a small venue, we are still unable to proceed with part two of this Beethoven cycle. We hope this may be possible from the Autumn.
There will be further news on the Hungarian cycle at the University of Debrecen once the university is able to proceed with concert planning.
If you would like to be notified as soon as new dates are fixed at either location, please email us via the ‘Contact us’ form with the subject ‘Beethoven update’.
This website also serves as an archive for Music-Makers, a Scottish charity dedicated to chamber music which Gusztáv Fenyő founded in 1995. Under his artistic direction, Music-Makers acquired a reputation for innovative programmes, imaginative presentations and exciting performances. These ranged from festivals and themed concert series to masterclasses and summer schools, in a variety of settings, mostly within Scotland and always involving superb professional musicians. See Past Events.
Music-Makers has recently closed to allow more time for Gusztáv Fenyő to pursue his own performing and teaching career, including increasing activities in Hungary. We would like to thank all who supported Music-Makers throughout these twenty-five years and hope very much that you will continue to stay in touch.
Gusztáv intends to produce more frequent blogs on a range of musical topics and, of course, there will be further news about his own musical activities – all on this website, so there is no need to look elsewhere!
