Event description

Description

This multi-day event celebrates Ludwig van Beethoven’s masterful chamber music alongside the artistic riches of the Elder Conservatorium of Music (The University of Adelaide), the Seraphim Trio, Konstantin Shamray, Lucinda Collins, Francesca Hiew and the Australian String Quartet.

As part of this mini-festival, the J. M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice co-presents a free public lecture with David Malouf exploring the quality of lateness in Beethoven’s third period. Theodor Adorno understands late style as a “quarrel with time”, in which death enters the work “in a refracted mode, as allegory.” He conceives of Beethoven’s third period as a moment when the artist, fully in command of his medium, composes works which constitute a form of exile. Join David Malouf as he develops these notions in a fascinating public lecture hosted by acclaimed pianist and author Dr Anna Goldsworthy.
