Exceptional chamber musicians showcase Beethoven’s mastery in this complete Cello Sonata Cycle event
In composing these five sonatas, Beethoven pioneered the repertoire for Piano and Cello. In 1796, at 25 years of age, he wrote the first and second sonata in Berlin (four years before writing his mighty Symphony No. 5, and five years before he wrote for string quartet). He composed the fourth and fifth sonata aged 45, ailing and increasingly impacted by deafness. These sonatas reflect the journey of Beethoven's music and life. Performed over two concerts, Timo-Veikko Valve and Aura Go will explore and expertly unpack these incredible works and speak to Beethoven's unmatched creative power and process.
