Programme Notes

This concert reminds us that there can be great warmth and intimacy in Beethoven's music. It begins with Beethoven's variations on a theme from Mozart's Magic Flute; piano and 'cello sing of love in its many moods - tenderness, exuberance and yearning. Beethoven's violin sonata  Op 24 explores a lyrical world filled with grace, generosity and elegance. While Carl Reinecke's arrangement of Beethoven's orchestral concerto Op 56 reaches deep emotions with its rich musical textures and powerful expression.
