In the conclusion of the Ulster Hall Piano Series, Dublin born pianist John O'Conor returns to Belfast with an all-Beethoven programme. Since winning the Beethoven International Piano Competition in 1973 O'Conor has been critically acclaimed for his interpretation of the composer's repertoire for the piano.

Today's concert begins with the Opus 126 Bagatelles, Beethoven's final work for the instrument (which he dedicated to his younger brother Johann), before moving on to two of his most popular sonatas.

Beethoven: Six Bagatelles, Op.126
Beethoven: Sonata in C minor, Op.13, "Pathétique"
Beethoven: Sonata in A flat, Op.110

John O'Conor, piano.
