Fortepianist Trevor Stephenson, director of the Madison Bach Musicians, performs a program of masterworks by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert. Four pieces in C minor are balanced with some light-hearted vignettes. The program includes Mozart, Fantasy in C minor, K. 457; Haydn, Sonata in C minor, Hob. XVI:20; Beethoven, Sonata in C minor, Op. 13 “Pathétique,” and Schubert’s Piano Piece in E-flat (with a stormy central section in C minor). These are followed by Mozart’s hilarious Variations on “Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman,” K. 265 (“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”) and Haydn’s Sonata in G major, Hob. XVI:39.
