Beethoven Piano 2 17th Feb The Bear Club Map
In the second concert of our complete survey of the sonatas for piano by Ludwig van Beethoven we welcome back a dear friend of Music on Mondays, the pianist Danny Driver. Now established as one of Britain’s most sensitive and respected keyboard artists, he offers us the most monumental of all the sonatas, the mighty Hammerklavier. The programme balances the epic drama of this Beethoven with the Baroque refinement of Ravel, an experimental wor kby American Betsy Jolas and contemporary lyricism from Deirdre McKay – a pianistic feast of riches indeed.
‘…dauntless clarity, understated wit and graceful vitality.’
