To continue our Beethoven exploration/celebration , we are diving into a monument of Music History: his 5th Symphony!!
Beyond the iconic , legendary and unmistakable opening " Fate" leitmotiv, this masterpiece is pushing the boundaries of the Symphony genre.
Today 's social distancing doesn't allow us to hear the orchestra version , so we'll hear the piano 4 hands version with Haga Ratovo and Yannick Rafalimanana. It is rare in our days to hear symphonies for Piano 4 hands but it used to be the common way to show your music to friends back in the days.
To complete the program, Haga will present a selection of Debussy Preludes for piano.

Haga and Yannick have known each other for more than 10 years from their studies time in Paris. Their common passion for football has forged a unique chemistry in their music making. Haga is joining Yannick in Berlin ( from Paris) for this special event!

Thank you everyone for attending our concert and being so supportive in this difficult period! Apologies for the sound quality in the first half, we will try to record the Debussy preludes before Haga leaves and send it to you all.
We will keep you updated for the next Beethoven exploration! Until then, be well and stay healthy!
Yannick and Haga
