Stephen Kovacevich has been described by The Telegraph as 'a resolute defender of the musical high ground, and someone who keeps returning to the great works and finding something new in them.'
He has chosen a programme featuring Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms, three composers for whom he has been immensely acclaimed throughout his outstanding career, which spans four decades.
At this concert he presents two contrasting masterpieces from among Beethoven's sonatas - the dazzling and dramatic early Sonata in C minor, Op.10 No.1, and Sonata in E, Op.109, a late work full of structural originality and mystical reflectiveness.
The intimate side of Schubert is represented by an irrepressively melodic Impromptu, the A flat Moment Musical and a selection from the German Dances.
The concert ends with a selection of Brahms's most dynamic and touching late piano pieces.Performers
