Kristian Bezuidenhout fortepiano

The culmination of Kristian Bezuidenhout’s recital at University Church is one of Beethoven’s last eighteenth-century utterances: a ‘grand sonata’ for piano whose steadily heightening turbulence, prophetic exhaustion and ultimate drama would lend it the name ‘Pathétique’. Before that, the charismatic South African keyboardist brings us two of Beethoven’s most decorative sonatas written under the benevolent influence of Haydn and Mozart, and the immediately engrossing set of Rondos Op. 51.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.25

Tickets: £20.00 £15.00 £10.00
