Heroic concert at the Assembly House

On Friday 20th April 2012 I attended the UEA School of Music concert in the Music at One series at Norwich Assembly House featuring pianist Alison Lincoln. The programme consisted of Sonata No.21 in C, Op.53 Waldstein - Beethoven and Grande Polonaise, Op.53 - Heroic.

Beethoven composed his Waldstein sonata in 1804 during his middle or Heroic period. This piece was dedicated to Count Ferdinand Ernst Gabriel von Waldstein who famously wrote to Beethoven on hearing that he was moving to Vienna, "you shall receive the spirit of Mozart from Haydn's hands."

The second piece in the programme was written by Chopin in 1842. Grande Polonaise kept with the heroic theme of the lunchtime programme. This was another wonderful concert at Norwich Assembly House from the UEA School of Music.
