Beethoven Violin Sonatas II – Osostowicz (Violin), Tong (Piano) @ Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, Oxford
Thursday 11 December 2014, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
£20 (gallery) / £15 (stalls) / £5 (student)
- Beethoven: Violin Sonata in E flat, Op. 12 No. 3
- Beethoven: Violin Sonata in A minor, Op 23
- Beethoven: Violin Sonata in G major, Op. 96
This programme begins with one of the bold and brilliant Op. 12 sonatas, music of a confident young genius in full spate. Also in this concert, the fiercely compressed A minor sonata, Op. 23, is contrasted with the sublime G major, Op. 96, whose rarefied lyricism looks ahead to Beethoven’s so-called ‘third period’.
