The Carthage Trio — which this year is focusing on the influential works of composer Ludwig Van Beethoven — is performing 7:30 Monday night (Feb. 17) in the college’s Siebert Chapel.
Beethoven’s chamber music alone consists of 16 string quartets, five string quintets, seven piano trios, five pieces for string trio and a dozen works for wind instruments. Songs that will be featured during Monday’s performance include Beethoven’s “Sonata Op. 69 for piano and cello No.3” and Beethoven’s “Variations Op. 121a for piano, violin, and cello.”
The recital will feature Wael Farouk on the piano, Herine Coetzee Koschak on the cello and Andrew Williams playing the violin.
