J.S. Bach Partita No.4 in D, BWV 828 (25’)
Beethoven Sonata No.31 in A-flat, Op.110 (22’)
Schubert Sonata No.21 in B-flat, D.960 (45’)

American-born pianist Stephen Kovacevich moved to Britain to study with Dame Myra Hess and has since graced concert platforms across the world for over 50 years. He made his name with critically acclaimed recordings of Beethoven and Schubert with a special fascination for their late works. His recital presents two of the finest. Beethoven’s Op.110 is fluently expressive, yet also intellectually compact, while Schubert’s last Sonata in B-flat is grandly expansive and lyrical, as well as searchingly profound.

Preview 5.15pm The Magical Sound of The Bridgewater Hall
