Beethoven reCYCLE Part One, Concert One: 'Waldstein'

“Outstanding Beethoven all round. The special attraction is the rare spiritual dimension in Houstoun’s playing of the serene finales... It’s as though Beethoven were no longer of this planet when he wrote them” - The Listener

Acclaimed New Zealand pianist Michael Houstoun performs all 32 Beethoven piano sonatas in 40 concerts throughout New Zealand in 2013 in Beethoven reCYCLE 2013.

Michael Houstoun is not only New Zealand’s foremost Beethoven pianist, internationally he ranks among the great Beethoven pianists of our age. He celebrates his 60th birthday with this historic cycle of 32 Beethoven sonatas, some of the supreme treasures of human artistic endeavour.

The famous names of the sonatas – Moonlight, Pathétique, Appassionata – have all entered popular culture; film, television, dance and drama have all taken inspiration from these iconic pieces and are loved by pianists around the world.

Beethoven’s cycle of 32 piano sonatas is remarkable. Written the whole length of his creative life, from the early Op 2 dedicated to Haydn to the mighty Op 111 which takes the piano into the realms of pure imagination, this is the “New Testament of the piano repertoire” and one of the supreme treasures of human artistic endeavour.

Part One of Beethoven reCYCLE 2013 includes three programmes in each centre featuring the Waldstein, Tempest or Hammerklavier and will be performed during March and April in Auckland, Napier, Wellington and Christchurch.
