Programme Note

Beethoven's five sonatas for cello and piano were composed at key points in his life and as such offer a fascinating glimpse into his creative development, from the youthful exuberance, wit and vitality of the Opus 5 Sonatas to the Opus 102 Sonatas, which express an almost transcendental spirituality.

Born in Hertfordshire, Guy Johnston has secured a reputation as one of the finest cellists of his generation. We can expect profound interpretations of these daring and increasingly visionary masterpieces by Beethoven. A marvellous way to bring the 2022 Festival to a close.
