Honens @ Home: Nicolas Namoradze performs Beethoven
For the month of February, we are dedicating Honens @ Home to 2018 Honens Prize Laureate Nicolas Namoradze! As you'll hear from Artistic Director Jon Kimura Parker, despite the challenging times, Nicolas has had a flurry of recent success that we are excited to share with you.
In today's excerpt, enjoy the third movement of Beethoven's Quintet for piano and winds in E-flat Major Op. 16 with the Azahar Ensemble, recorded live at the 2018 Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary. Said to be modelled after Mozart's Quintet K. 452, the piece showcases Beethoven's composing and pianistic prowess ... and Nicolas Namoradze's skill as a chamber musician!
