Notes and Editorial Reviews

A Musical Journey: Italy

The Places
The journey starts in the magnificent cathedral of Siena, with a sight of the city's narrow streets and historic public buildings. In Pisa the Campanile is shown at its familiar angle, the famous Leaning Tower. At Nervi, now part of Genoa, we visit the Villa Luxoro with its collection of clocks and figurines, and gardens overlooking the sea.

The Music
The music of the tour consists of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 and the first of his 32 numbered piano sonatas. Both works date from the last decade of the 18th century, at a time when Beethoven was establishing himself in Vienna as a performer and composer, before the onset of deafness that made the former
Read more career increasingly difficult and then impossible.
