DACAMERA's year-long celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday was set to reach its apex on March 24 with a performance of Beethoven's most beloved and beautiful sonatas by renowned pianist Richard Goode. Instead, DACAMERA artistic director Sarah Rothenberg invites you to join us in listening to Beethoven's 26th sonata in E-flat Major, also known as "Les Adieux" or "The Farewell." It's a work almost perfectly designed to express the feelings of isolation and separation of our present moment.
