Rémi Géniet was the youngest ever winner of the Beethoven competition, making headlines in the music industry. In 2011, he came second prize Queen Elisabeth of Belgium in 2013. Since then, he has proved himself as one of the very first pianists of his generation. This concert in the Auditorium of the Louvre is the chance to see this performer playing some magnificent scores in a beautiful setting.
First, Géniet plays Johann Sebastian Bach’s Caprice On the Death of a Beloved Brother, a reflective and obviously emotional piece by the great composer. Next up is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in A major, a more upbeat piece in a a form which epitomises Beethoven’s style. Finally we hear Edward Grieg’s Piano Sonata in E major, a wonderful example of sonata form writing. Enter the Louvre’s majestic pyramid and hear this genius at work.
