The MMF celebrates Beethoven 251st year in one of Moab’s beautiful private homes, where artists perform on the instruments for which Beethoven wrote. A fortepiano, much different from the modern piano, and string instruments using gut strings and early bows, reveal the secrets of Beethoven’s music to electrifying effect. The performance is followed by a delicious meal and lively conversation with artists and other audience members.
