Another chance to hear last Monday's Proms Chamber Music recital with pianist Lars Vogt. The programme begins with Janacek's impressionistic last major piano work, it's 'mistiness' captured in these miniatures by evocative harmonies and constantly shifting perspectives. Schubert's Sonata is by contrast one of his more expansive solo works in which the easy-going tone is interrupted by anguished outbursts, though the mood lightens again for the playful conclusion.
