About this event

Pianists Imogen Cooper and Paul Lewis return for the final Late Night Prom of the festival. Cooper plays Schubert’s late, great Piano Sonata in C minor, its scherzo still informed by the Rossinian joie de vivre of the early symphonies, the surrounding movements infused with the sorrow and resignation of the song-cycles Winterreise and Schwanengesang.

Published posthumously, the symphonically conceived ‘Grand Duo’ dates from the summer of 1824, when the composer was engaged as music master to Maria and Caroline Esterházy in the family’s Slovakian estate.
