A nugget of #Beethoven trivia: The last movement of Trio in B Flat Major is a theme and nine variations based on the jaunty final trio from Joseph Weigl’s wildly popular comic opera The Corsair; the trio was nicknamed “Gassenhauer” (describing a tune that people sang or whistled) and was so catchy that people sang it everywhere in the streets of Vienna. We’re excited to see Natasha Paremski bring her unique energy to Beethoven on Friday, February 10, to the Alaska Airlines Winter Classics in Anchorage.

Built circa 1620, Wendy Sutter performs on a beautiful cello with a rich history. Originally a viola da gamba, Stradivari, a student of the original maker, transformed it into the bigger, more modern sized cello. For over a century, it was housed and played in the Sistine Chapel. This February, Wendy brings her magical instrument to Anchorage for a weekend performance at the Alaska Airlines Winter Classics in Anchorage. For more information and an opportunity to see this historical instrument in action, visit the link for tickets.
