Performed just feet away from the little room where Ludwig van Beethoven was born, this concert comes to you from Germany's most often-visited music museum, the Beethoven House. Performing is a piano trio with a long-term commitment to the genre, the Sitkovetsky Trio, and the programme is tied together by the concept of theme and variations, from the capricious to the profound.
