The Thomas Harris International Piano Foundation presents: Celebrate Christmas with Beethoven and Others in Style – Claudio Bohorquez (cello) & Alberto Portugheis (piano)

Saturday 15 December 2018, 7pm to 9pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)

Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Celebrate Christmas with Beethoven in Style. This is an exclusive and unique opportunity to experience the performance of two international, well-known and highly respected interpreters of Beethoven, who will join forces in telling the story of the composer’s life through his five Cello and Piano Sonatas, on the eve of his birthday. It also celebrates Thomas Harris’ own love of Beethoven. To hear all of these masterpieces in one fell swoop is a special occasion indeed, rarely to be found.
