About The Event

Peter Foggitt, piano (as Woelfl)

Thibault Charrin, piano (as Beethoven)

Austrian Composer, Joseph Woelfl (1773-1812) moved to London in 1805, living his last days in Marylebone, dying in Great Marylebone Street in 1812. A child prodigy, he became a rival to Ludwig van Beethoven - a rivalry which culminated in a piano ‘duel’ at the house of Count Wezlar in 1798. This concert recreates this duel, using two pianos and period costume. A ‘master of ceremonies’, Baron Wezlar von Planckenstern, will preside over the contest, allowing you to vote for your winner!
