Joseph Haydn:
Piano sonata no. 62 in E-flat major, Hob. XVI:52

Johann Wilhelm Wilms:
Arietta ‘Einmal in meinem achten Jahr’ from Paul Wranitzky‘s opera ‘Oberon’

Ludwig van Beethoven:
‘Andante favori’ in F major, WoO 57

Ludwig van Beethoven:
Piano sonata no. 21 in C major, op. 53 (‘Waldstein-Sonata’)

Though Joseph Haydn was only briefly Beethoven’s teacher, his late works were of formative importance to the young man – including the sparkling ‘London’ Piano Sonatas in C and E-flat major (1794). A short while later Beethoven wrote a set of piano variations on a Russian dance that revealed his independent approach to this popular genre. With the ‘Waldstein’ Sonata the piano sonata entered the realm of truly ‘great’ art on a par with the symphony. The Dutch pianist-composer Johann Wilhelm Wilms signifies the European impact of the Viennese classical style around 1800. And in the multiple prize-winning Dutch pianist Ronald Brautigam the Beethovenfest has found an artist capable of performing brilliantly both on a modern instrument and on a hammerklavier.
