Classical music, Beethoven’s piano sonatas by Virginia Black Piano

Virginia Black returns to the keyboard and her lifelong love: Beethoven’s piano sonatas. The 3 sonatas programmed here afford us a window onto Beethoven’s life and his increasing struggle with hearing loss. We meanwhile experience Beethoven at his best: breaking the rules of the sonata form.

First singles out

Edward Higginbottom is joined by rising star soprano, Holly Teague and percussionist, Felix Higginbottom as he takes Rameau’s most theatrical compositions into the organ loft and ‘reimagines’ their performance, meanwhile taking us on a journey through exotic landscapes and arresting scenes.
