MOZART Rondo in A minor, K. 511

BEETHOVEN Sonata in A-flat, Op. 110

SCHUBERT Sonata in C minor, D. 958

Martin Roscoe is well-known to Portsmouth audiences both through solo piano recitals and through partnerships most notably with the late Peter Cropper who was the inspiration behind this series.

His programme includes another extraordinary work from that last decade of Beethoven’s life, paired with a Schubert sonata composed 18 months after Beethoven’s death, and just a couple of months before Schubert himself died. It is one of a set of three composed in September 1828 along with the great C major string quintet.

‘…the pacing, the expressive energy, the understanding of form, the tension, absolutely wonderful.’
