Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Cello Mats Lidström is joined by Sholto Kynoch to resume our series of Beethoven’s cello sonatas, beginning with a genuine rarity: the composer’s own cello arrangement of his perky horn sonata in F. As well as works by the composer’s contemporaries Wölfl and Romberg, we hear two more of Beethoven’s five cello sonatas. No. 3 is a work born amid tears and sorrow, its poignancy lined with sweetness. By the time of the Sonata No. 4, the sonatas were embracing ever more variety and breadth – this example alternating tenderness and force, explosive energy and wistful contemplation.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.35

Tickets: £25
