‘A profoundly gifted artist who has already achieved greatness.’ Gramophone

In this afternoon recital, renowned pianist Katya Apekisheva will continue the Beethoven 250 celebrations at Kings Place with an exploration of three of the most fascinating early keyboard works. The energetic, radical spirit of the youthful composer emerges through sonatas filled with pianistic brilliance, vibrant textures and an abundance of invention.

Humorous qualities abound in the variation tribute to fellow composer Salieri, a rarely performed set presenting Beethoven at his most quirky, whilst clearly acknowledging a debt to his mentor Joseph Haydn.
