Celebrated performing artist and teacher Yehuda Hanani will join Minot State University music faculty Dianna and Erik Anderson Thursday through Friday (April 28-30). The three days of public lecture, discussion, master class and performance will focus on the complete works for piano and cello by Ludwig van Beethoven. The concerts are in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall Friday and Saturday (April 28-29) at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday (April 30) at 3 p.m.
Hanani is a professor of violoncello at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and an international master class teacher. He worked with both of the Andersons during their doctoral studies.
Beethovenís five sonatas and three sets of variations, as well as a horn sonata transcribed by the composer, form the most important set of works by a single composer for this common instrumental combination. Each will be presented during the three evening concerts.
Students, staff and faculty are admitted free to all events with MSU ID. Concerts are $10 per event for the general public, or $25 for all three, including admission to the daily presentations/master classes.
