Tempest in C minor

The 24 keys in music mysteriously possess unmistakable personalities. Like human beings, some are more suited to one occasion than another. For whatever reason, C minor (the dark side of C major) has often been the key of choice for composers in stormy moods. Join us for Beethoven, Brahms, and Fauré at their turbulent best.
