2/6 Appassionata Piano Sonata and Clarinet Trio Masterclasses

Even though I don't personally play piano or clarinet, watching a masterclass on performing Beethoven's music can add quite a bit to the enjoyment of a performance...

Part 1-3: Pianist Lisa Yui, a Yamaha Performing Artist and faculty member of the Manhattan School of Music, gives a masterclass on Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23, Op. 57, "Appassionata", for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011.

Part 4-7: Jonathan Biss teaches a masterclass on Beethoven's Clarinet Trio Op 11 at the Conservatory of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. He was the guest of the Aldwell Center for Piano Performance and Musicianship, which is part of the Conservatory.


Update: I did a color analysis of the Appasionata here - you can clearly see the variations Professor Yui talks about in the 2nd movement there.
