PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ALL EVENTS AFTER 14 MARCH 2020 HAVE BEEN CANCELLED OR POSTPONED AND ARE NO LONGER LISTED HERE. ONCE THE MEDIUM TO LONGER TERM FUTURE IS CLEARER, EVENTS WILL BE LISTED AS THEY ARE RE-ARRANGED.
Florian is delighted to continue his ‘Beethoven and Beyond’ project at the Victoria Hall in Grange over Sands. This is a rescheduled concert, which was supposed to happen in 2020, but due to the ongoing pandemic, it had to be delayed to this date. Due to the restrictions still being in place, this concert is open only to members of The Grange-over-sands and District Concert Club. It is the first piano recital that Florian will perform in front of a live audience, with repertoire that he will repeat later in the year, at concerts where it will be possible to book tickets and go watch in person.
The programme explores two main directions of Beethoven, and echoes to these two pathways from across the Romantic age. Two young Beethoven Sonatas are paired with the music of Liszt and Chopin. The revolutionary op. 2 no. 3 C major Sonata finds its echo in the symphonic sound of the Liszt Dante Sonata, while the noble Grande Polonaise Brillante of Chopin, with its lilting, filigree melody, reflects the gentle and thoroughly lyrical op. 7 E-flat major Sonata (the second longest Beethoven Piano Sonata, after The Hammerklavier Sonata). These two early Beethoven Sonatas show just how mature Beethoven was already when aged just 25, and how his early works, not just his late ones, display this inexplicable ability to spiritualise sound, and turn it into thoughts and emotions.
Florian is extremely grateful to the Grange-over-sands and District Concert Club for rescheduling this concert, and is very excited about meeting a live audience again!
