We’re delighted to welcome Ivan Hovorun to Emmanuel on Wednesday 4 March at 1pm for the next in our Lunchtime Concert Series.
Ivan’s programme will be Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 29 in B♭ major, Op 106, Hammerklavier.
Ivan tells us about this piece ‘Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata Op.109 achieved an exceptional place among all the composer’s sonatas not only for reasons of length – it is like a symphony written for the pianoforte – but also because of the new musical ideas expressed in this piece. In addition, this sonata includes the largest slow movement and fuga ever written in the Classical and Romantic era.’
We hope to see you here!
