Lecture on Beethoven Sonata 32, given by Andras Schiff (43 minutes) »

Little introduction is necessary for Scotland's leading pianist, whose international reputation, through concerts across the globe and acclaimed recordings, continues to grow apace. This superb programme of Schubert and Beethoven takes us to the very heart of piano literature, and culminates in Beethoven's last piano sonata. Described by pianist and musicologist Robert Taub as "a work of unmatched drama and transcendence ... the triumph of order over chaos, of optimism over anguish" it's a supreme challenge for any pianist, but few are better equipped to take it on than Steven Osborne.

"a breathtaking performance, received with an enthusiasm that saw it cheered to the rafters" The Daily Telegraph

in association with Kilmardinny Music Circle
