Shai Wosner: Beethoven Sonata Cycle

Music, Classical and opera

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The pianist Shai Wosner continues LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle with Piano Sonata No 1 in F minor; Piano Sonata No 6 in F; and Piano Sonata No 18 in E flat major ('The Hunt'). (Dedicated to his teacher, Joseph Haydn, Op 2 No 1's brilliant virtuosity has made it a favourite show piece among emerging pianists. Beethoven gave his Op 10 No 2 to Countess Anna Margarete von Browne, whose husband enjoyed Beethoven's music so much that he gave him a horse, which Beethoven promptly forgot all about until he received its large food bill. The otherwise gentle Op 31 No 3 earned the nickname 'The Hunt' for its highly charged finale.)
