Imogen Cooper Iii
TUESDAY 12 JUNE - 8:00 PM
Beethoven Bagatelles, Op 119
Schoenberg Six little pieces, Op 19
Haydn Sonata in C, Hob.XVI:50
Beethoven Thirty-three variations in C on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli, Op 120
Imogen Cooper brings the season and her series to a close with what Alfred Brendel has described as ‘the greatest of all piano works.’ Beethoven’s response to Viennese publisher Anton Diabelli’s invitation to contribute a single variation to his theme was a monumental work which takes the variation form in new and uncharted directions. Schoenberg’s pieces and Beethoven’s set of Bagatelles offer contrasting miniatures whilst the evening opens with Haydn’s sonata composed on his second visit to London.
