Alumni of the Oxford Piano Festival gather for this recital in which we hear Beethoven’s very first published sonata. Even in this impressionable F minor work, however, Beethoven is prone to provocation – a sudden fortissimo here, a defiant modulation there. Next we graduate to the chamber-like sophistication of the Sonata No. 9 and to Beethoven’s singing Sonata Op. 79. Finally, Sonata No. 11, a work which saw the composer embrace the world of the virtuoso once more, rounds off this display of talent from artists nurtured here in Oxford.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 16.50

Tickets: £20
