Mozart and Beethoven combine in this recital by the renowned pianist.
Angela Hewitt is one of the most respected pianists on the international stage. She appears with major orchestras, in recital at prestigious venues and has an extensive discography. She completed her project to record all Beethoven’s piano sonatas in February 2022 with the release of the final album.
This afternoon, Angela ends her recital with a work she has described as ‘one of the most sublime compositions a pianist can play’. Beethoven’s final sonata premiered in 1822. He described it as ‘not very difficult’, but its sheer scale and technical demands have challenged artists for over 200 years.
