EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2010
Welsh pianist -and former BBC New Generation Artist- Llyr Williams pairs Beethoven's Sonata Quasi Una Fantasia, in E-flat major, with Charles Ives' majestic 'Concord' Sonata. To recreate the American composer's eccentric musical vision, he is joined by violist Jane Atkins and flautist Juliette Bausor, for an expanded Piano Sonata which is as much a study of Ives' philosophy as his composition.
Piano Sonata No. 13 in E-flat Op.27 No. 1
Piano Sonata No. 2, "Concord, Mass., 1840-1860".
