About The Mannes Beethoven Institute
Thomas Sauer, Director
The 14th annual Mannes Beethoven Institute will incorporate music of our time into an intensive seven-day Beethoven seminar. This year's institute will take place June 1–7, 2014. Solo and chamber works by Stephen Hartke (b. 1952), recognized for their intelligence, intricacy, and eclecticism, will be studied and performed alongside Beethoven’s sonatas, trios, and string quartets. Participants are encouraged to bring a Hartke piece to life with the same intensity that they devote to a Beethoven work of their choice.
Applications are welcome in the following categories: solo piano; pre-formed violin/piano duo; pre-formed cello/piano duo; pre-formed piano trio; pre-formed string trio; pre-formed piano quartet; and pre-formed string quartet. Enrollment will be strictly limited to ensure that all participants leave the institute with a deeper understanding of Beethoven and a new awareness of one of America's contemporary masters. A list of Stephen Hartke's works suitable for study at the Beethoven Institute can be found here. Any questions about the repertoire of either composer should be addressed to Thomas Sauer at BeethovenInstitute@newschool.edu.
The Beethoven Institute will be held at Mannes College The New School for Music on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The institute is open to students and young professionals.
