Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110
Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111

Sir András Schiff piano

Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas were composed in a single, intensive spurt of activity around 1820 and seem to open up entirely new worlds. They move from melancholy considerations of familial love (No. 30), through ethereal shadows of Beethoven’s own Missa Solemnis, in progress at the time (No. 31), to the combination of serenity and latent power that ultimately characterises the last (No. 32). In each, we sense the birth of new life and new hope. To play them at the Sheldonian Theatre we welcome a legend of the piano and a true friend of Oxford’s classical music life, Sir András Schiff.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.25

Tickets: £50 £38 £28 £18
