Kit Armstrong piano

Kit Armstrong, winner of the 2019 Beethoven Ring awarded by citizens of the composer’s hometown of Bonn, continues our cycle of the composer’s piano sonatas with works spanning 17 years. From the freshness of No. 2 to the roguish charm of No. 6 and the classical grace of No. 19, we arrive at the two magnificent works Beethoven conceived in the February of 1810: the fairytale originality of No. 24, and the song of jubilation wrought from a heartrending farewell that is No. 26. Don’t miss this contribution to our Beethoven celebrations from a pianist for whom ‘intellect is completely in the service of the music’ (International Piano).

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.30

Tickets: £25 £20 £15 £10
