Kate Molleson introduces a performance given at Perth Concert Hall by pianist Lars Vogt. Schubert: Four Impromptus, D899. Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 32 in C minor, Op 111.
Kate Molleson presents the third in a series of four programmes featuring some of the most outstanding and thought-provoking pianists of our time. Today Lars Vogt plays Beethoven's very last sonata for the piano, No 32 in C minor. In it Beethoven demonstrated his mastery of the form and pushed the keyboard instrument of the time to its absolute limits. To start, Lars performs Schubert's four miniatures, titled by his publisher as 'impromptus'.
