The cycle closes with Beethoven’s final sonata offering, the transcendental C Minor op.111. But before that there’s the high-jinx of the early sonata op.22, the warm-heart of the E Flat op.31 no.3 and the wonderful ‘Les Adieux,’ one of his most clearly programmatic works.
And to finish, that great C Minor sonata, as Beethoven bids farewell to the genre that he took from Haydn and Mozart and bequeathed to the entire Romantic generation to follow.
The concert lasts approximately 90 minutes with a 15 minute interval.
