Beethoven's ten violin sonatas are among the most important bodies of work for piano and violin ever written, setting the standard to which all other composers aspired. Leading violinist of her generation Krysia Osostowicz teams up with critically acclaimed pianist Daniel Tong to bring a complete performance of the cycle to Sheffield with an extra dimension. Ten leading composers have written new companion pieces for each sonata, creating a dialogue between past and present, shedding new light on what Beethoven’s music means to us today.
Played together with their new companions, this musical adventure offers an opportunity to hear Beethoven’s sonatas afresh,stillas radical and provocative today as they were two hundred years ago!
