On October 3rd the Nazareth-born pianist gave the first recital of his Beethoven Residency series at the St. Agnes Convent. Ashkar performed the sonatas Op. 2 No. 3, Op. 31 No. 2, Op. 54 and Op. 101 with power and lucency, with heart and mind!
Already after the first concerts in Berlin and Prague one can see that Ashkar is a leading Beethoven exegete of our time.
