TUESDAY 17 OCTOBER - 8:00 PM
Chloë Hanslip violin
Danny Driver piano
Violin Sonata in D, D384 Sonatina
Sonata No 10 in G, Op 96
Sonata No 9 in A, Op 47 Kreutzer
Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver’s final programme includes the last two sonatas which Beethoven wrote. Separated by a gap of ten years they are contrasting works. The Kreutzer, arguably the most popular and regularly performed of the whole cycle, is monumental in scale and was described by Beethoven as ‘written in a highly concertante style, just like a concerto’, whilst the tenth and last sonata is more intimate and restrained.
Schubert’s first violin sonata, which opens the programme, was composed in 1816, the year in which Beethoven’s final sonata was published.
