‘Highly distinctive performances, played with enormous flair and perfect technical control’ Gramophone
Beethoven’s sonatas for piano and cello span his creative output, from the heroic classicism of Op. 5 to the radical brevity of the final sonatas, which frame the shining jewel in the crown, the A major Sonata Op. 69.
Who better to take us on this epic journey than Dutch maestro Pieter Wispelwey, and the questing young pianist Alasdair Beatson: two visionary artists whose fiery focus promises to ignite these indelible masterpieces.
Please note, this concert has an approximate running time of 2.5 hours including two intervals.
