Contact Grotto Concert I: Beethoven In The Arches [email protected]

Take a jet boat down the Colorado River through spectacular red rock canyons to "nature's own concert hall" (The New York Times) - an acoustically perfect wilderness Grotto carved from the surrounding red rock walls. Virtuosos Jason Vieaux, guitar, and Kristin Lee, violin, open the concert with Bach, The Red Violin, and a duo by Vivian Fung. The Junction Trio creates a contrasting sonority with Beethoven's majestic "Archduke" Trio. The last of his piano trios, the "Archduke," exhibits the profound nobility, breadth, and depth that define Beethoven's later works. A light reception with the artists precedes the glorious boat ride home.
