LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata Series.

In the second of his recitals for our complete cycle of the Beethoven sonatas, American-born pianist Nicholas Angelich plays two of Beethoven's less well-known sonatas. Op.2 No.2 comes from the very first group,of sonatas Beethoven published and is dedicated to his one-time teacher, Haydn. The second work on Nicholas's programme is from only a few years later but Beethoven had, by then, become very much his own man and the music takes several unexpected twists and turns.
