Summer Musical Moments

©Michael Block

"Classical Music compositions are always subdivided into different moments. And these moments can be seen as different characters of an opera, therefore each of them with its own personality, rhythm and intensity." This is what Peter Szabo explains in the second movement of his Masterclass about Beethoven's Cello Sonata No. 4, one of this month's new masterclasses. The summer scenery also has its own settings and moments. It is meant to relax, retrieve, refresh recover and regain new energy, and with our modern technology, why don't you enjoy one of the new Masterclasses while relaxing at the pool?
