‘Podger is Britain’s finest period violinist’ BBC Music Magazine


Violin and piano were the instruments Beethoven himself played and knew best. Throughout his life, he returned to them again and again, in a series of ten sonatas whose astonishing originality and invention have never been surpassed.

The famous Spring Sonata seems to be a hymn to nature, full of contentment and lyricism. The dramatic, sometimes stormy seventh sonata bristles with a tightly-wound energy, while the tenth has a graceful beauty that reveals a gentler, more contemplative side to this composer.

Using 19th century instruments that reflect Beethoven’s ideal, Rachel Podger and Christopher Glynn join forces to explore a sonata cycle that, more than any other, opens up new worlds of expression for their instruments.
