Programme Note

These three sonatas, all composed in the same year, are utterly different to each other: the first one is warm and lyrical, the second – in Beethoven’s favourite key of C minor – is dark and dramatic while the third is sparkling and carefree.

Their new companion pieces provide even more contrast, ranging from comedy and quasi-improvisation, to a touching homage to Beethoven by senior Austrian composer Kurt Schwertsik, founder of the Third Viennese School.

St Pancras Room, 6.30pm – Pre-concert talk with composers and performers. Free, but a ticket is required. Please call the Box Office on 020 7520 1490 to book.
