Programme Note

Beethoven's five sonatas for piano and violoncello provide a snapshot of the composer's life.

They span his debut in Berlin until the start of his late period.

At 21-years-old, Joy Lisney is one of Europe's most exciting young string players and her father has a distinguished reputation in this repertoire.
