Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ sonata has to be heard to be believed, and can only be heard once a violinist has confounded the notion that this devilish score is ‘impossible to play’, as Rodolphe Kreutzer declared. This sonata full of new techniques, bursting with unbridled fury and pitting violin and piano against one another in an perpetual struggle forms the culmination of our Beethoven sonata series, for which we welcome the fitting skills of Natalia Lomeiko and Iván Martín. They also give us the pent-up energy of the sonata that paved the way for the ‘Kreutzer’ (No. 4), while Yuri Zhislin plays Beethoven’s deeply personal No. 3. The two string players are united for a miniature gem by Alessandro Rolla.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.35

Tickets: £25.00
