TUESDAY 26 SEPTEMBER - 8:00 PM
Domenico Scarlatti Eight Sonatas
Bach/Busoni Chaconne in D minor, BWV 1004
Beethoven Sonata No 12 in A flat, Op 26
Beethoven Sonata No 30 in E, Op 109
Following his two mesmerising previous recitals at Turner Sims , Federico Colli, winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2012, returns to open the Piano Series with a programme which combines baroque and classical repertoire. A selection of sonatas by Scarlatti opens the evening followed by Busoni’s transcription of Bach’s great Chaconne for solo violin. Beethoven’s two sonatas come from two different periods of the composer’s life: Op 26, with its famous funeral march, from 1802, the same year as the first symphony, and Op 109 the first of his final set of three sonatas.
