LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Piano sonata No. 30 in E major Op. 109
Piano sonata No. 31 in A flat major Op. 110
Piano sonata No. 32 in C minor Op. 111
Igor LEVIT | piano
Romain Rolland says: “All three may have originated at the same time in the honey-bearing beehive of the beautiful serenity in the year 1820, yet each of them was composed under a different star and bears traces of a different mental phase”. Three last piano sonatas, three suggestive self-portraits should be played, one after the other, without a break, exactly as they will be by the miraculous Igor Levit from Nizhny Novgorod. This will be his first appearance in Prague, and with quite a programme! Well, for Igor these sonatas are the corner stone of his repertoire; his debut recording from 2013 was dedicated to them. Rolland describes them as flowers, so let’s take in their aroma.
The concert is organised in collaboration with the Rudolf Firkusny Piano Festival.
