Insubordinate Beethoven: Presented by MacPhail Center for Music and the Minneapolis Institute of Art

Presented by the Minneapolis Institute of Art and MacPhail Center for Music, and inspired by “The Habsburgs: Rarely Seen Masterpieces from Europe’s Greatest Dynasty.”

Beethoven long struggled with members of the aristocracy, especially the Habsburg dynasty in Vienna. His life reflects a fascinating dichotomy between a reliance on wealthy nobility as patrons and a profound, sometimes very public, scorn for them. Under the artistic direction of Mischa Santora, this performance features faculty musicians from the MacPhail Center for Music: Hanno Strydom on cello, Marc Levine on violin, and pianist Lara Bolton.

Tickets: $35. Reserve online or by calling (612) 870-3000. Because seating is very limited, tickets are available only for Patron-level museum members, and members of the Paintings Affinity Group or Decorative Arts, Textile, and Sculpture Affinity Group.
