Evgeni Koroliov piano

‘A penetrating tour de force’ was how Gramophone described one of Evgeni Koriolov’s very first recordings. As the Beethoven sonata cycle moves to the Holywell Music Room, the Russian pianist brings with him some of its biggest beasts, starting with the journey from pathos to glitter that characterises the Sonata No. 12. Then, it is on to the churning, unanswerable questions of ‘The Tempest’ and the colossus that is the ‘Hammerklavier’ – the work after which Beethoven declared, ‘now, I know for certain how music could and should be written.’

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.40

Tickets: £25
