The sonatas traverse Beethoven’s career and his various realms of expression – rhythmic force, explosive energy, philosophical searching and emotional catharsis.
Barley, a lifelong explorer of Beethoven’s sonatas, promises a ‘mini-festival’ in which the audience join the discussion and no element of Beethoven’s life or works is off limits.
The power and excitement of improvisation – the sort that fuelled Beethoven’s own compositions – shapes the entire evening.
