Two of the most monumental piano sonatas are brought to the stage by pianist Chris Cartner. 

 

Beethoven’s ‘Appassionata’ (meaning ‘passionate’) is a work which sums up the depth of his personality: a world-changing sonata of humanity, rage, love and deep emotional impact. 

 

The second half of this one-hour programme features the

F minor piano sonata by Brahms.  Truly a ‘symphony for the piano’, the work contains arguably some of the greatest melodic material of the 19th Century.  From its devastating opening, through a profoundly beautiful second movement and a wild ‘scherzo’, the finale is almost cinematic in scope.  The sonata remains one of the highlights of the entire piano repertoire.
