About the Show

“Not to be missed.” – Talkin’ Broadway

“A hypnotic production...a chamber music piece of exquisite beauty.” – Chicago Sun Times
 
He has been called the conjurer of the spirits – George Gershwin, Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt, Leonard Bernstein, Irving Berlin – in remarkable and mesmerizing solo shows that have played across America and the globe. San Diego Rep’s best selling artist of all time, Hershey Felder, returns to bring the story of Ludwig van Beethoven to life. 
 
In order to share a uniquely personal perspective of Beethoven and his world, Felder tells this classic composer’s story through someone close to him. This story is inspired by Dr. Gerhard von Breuning’s memoir which recounted how he helped care for the aging composer when he was a boy.
 
Hailed as “a seductive portraitist, compelling storyteller, and superb concert pianist,” by American Theatre Magazine, Felder commands the profound musical understanding to bring this legend to life. He offers an enthralling performance that can satisfy musical experts, as well as captivate audience members with little background in classical music. Featuring some of the composer’s greatest works, from “Moonlight Sonata” to the “Ninth Symphony” and the “Emperor Concerto,” Hershey Felder, Beethoven is an intense, illuminating and  unforgettable journey.
