Dear music and art lovers,
Perhaps last year in July, you were fortunate enough to hear this outstanding pianist when she performed in the Beethoven Chamber Music Hall as part of the International Kreutzer Competition, receiving an excellent review in General Anzeiger.
If this is not the case, then today you have the opportunity to experience Joanna Sochacka in the Musikstudio! With works by B. Bartók, F. Chopin and of course L. v. Beethoven this afternoon will be a real pleasure!
