Petworth Festival

Born into a family with a very special musical provenance, Adrian Brendel is one of the most versatile and original cellists of his generation. He has travelled the world as soloist, collaborator and teacher. His discovery of contemporary music through the works of Kurtag, Kagel and Ligeti in his teenage years opened a new and vital avenue that he continues to explore with huge enthusiasm alongside his passion for jazz and world music. In 2014 he became a member of the Nash Ensemble of London. He appears in partnership with the fine Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson who works prolifically both as a soloist and chamber musician.

The wide-ranging programme includes a further nod to Ludwig van Beethoven, the Sonata in A Major, one of the cornerstones of the cello repertoire.

Fauré – Cello Sonata No.1 in D minor Op. 29
Poulenc – Cello Sonata Op. 143
Schumann – 5 Stücke im Volkston Op. 102
Beethoven – Sonata in A major Op. 69
