Beethoven’s Blues, Part II


The annual Heirloom Music Festival in western Massachusetts connects different styles of music, fostering a conversation about music, culture, and art. Our theme for this year (2022) is ‘Beethoven’s Blues,’ exploring the feeling of the blues in classical music.

Each concert features different works that reflect the blues in some way.

Part II features works by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Beethoven, and Franz Schubert as well as a new work by Kenny Butler, Mercy’s Door for blues guitar and string quartet.

Professional musicians from around western Massachusetts have come together to make these programs possible. A heartfelt thank you to Kenny Butler, Chris Devine, Ignacy Gaydamovich, Marcia Lehninger, Allyson Michal, and Veronika Schreiber for their inspiring artistry.
