‘Life Returns – A Transcendence of Pain’ Stephen Kovacevich & Priya Mitchell

Thu 30 Sep 19:30

Oxford Chamber Music Festival

Even two hundred years on, Beethoven’s late piano sonatas are still unique portraits of the human spirit in all its facets: childlike, earthy, ecstatic, comical, suffering, and surviving, as at the end of op110. Stephen Kovacevich is one of their greatest interpreters. Between the two Beethoven sonatas, Debussy’s equally mercurial but very impressionistic sonata for violin, written during his long fatal illness, but which he rightly called ‘fantastic and light’ in its middle movement, and ‘full of joyous tumult’ in the finale.
