The Brunswick Beethoven Festival returns to Merri-bek this February 2023 for its 15th festival.
Stefan Cassomenos is one of Australia's most versatile musicians. In this year's festival Stefan performs two of the breathtaking summits of the 19th Century virtuoso piano repertoire – Alkan’s epically gothic Symphony for Solo Piano, alongside Liszt’s awe-inspiring transcription of Beethoven’s uplifting and iconic ode to joy, the Ninth Symphony.
The Brunswick Beethoven Festival brings together internationally acclaimed performers for a festival of the finest classical chamber music in Brunswick, inner Melbourne – and for the lowest prices so that everybody can afford to come and hear these exceptional artists playing the great classical composers – Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Handel, Chopin, Debussy and more.
