Don't miss this opportunity to hear Ronald Brautigam in his only performance in the United States this spring. Critics around the world have lavished praise on his performances of the complete fortepiano sonatas by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. In 2015 his Beethoven recordings won an Edison Award and the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik (Annual Prize from German Recording Critics). One of the world's leading exponents of the fortepiano, he is also professor of modern piano at the Musikhochschule Basel, Switzerland.
