Steven Osborne Piano Recital

Saturday, 3 August 2019 - 20:00


Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford

About the event


Sonata No. 21 in B flat major, D. 960


Vingt Regards sur l'enfant-Jésus, Nos 1, 8, 14, 19, 10

Not much can follow Schubert’s late piano sonatas. But after all the inwardness and fragility of the Sonata in B flat, Steven Osborne continues his festival debut by marking 75 years since the publication of a true one-off: Olivier Messiaen’s Vingt Regards sur l’enfant Jésus. For the festival’s final recital, Osborne – who was invited to study the work with Messiaen’s widow Yvonne Loriod after she heard him playing her late husband’s music – presents a selection of the composer’s otherworldly, colour-strewn portraits in the splendid surroundings of Christ Church Cathedral.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 10 pm.

Tickets: £25 £10
