LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata Series.
Continuing our recitals of Beethoven's complete piano sonatas, Nicholas Angelich plays three sonatas, ending with perhaps the most famous of them all: the 'Moonlight' sonata. The first sonata he plays is the Mozartian Sonata in C minor, Op.10 No.1, which he follows with the 'Funeral March' Sonata, nicknamed after the sombre third movement, a 'funeral march for the death of a hero'.
