Cordelia Williams’ programme opens with works by two composers who explore the ways in which two musical lines interweave and interact, responding to and changing one another: Bach’s Two-part Inventions, where the hands echo and answer one another, and Arvo Pärt, his tintinnabuli music, where the focus is on the intervallic relationship between two lines. The second half features one of the monuments of the piano repertoire. The 30-minute single-movement B minor sonata is dedicated to Schumann, and has been described by Alfred Brendel as ‘surpassing in originality, boldness and expressive range, anything written in this genre since Beethoven and Schubert’.
