One of our favourite performers, Kathryn Stott, returns to the Piano Week, giving us a rare chance to encounter Grieg’s piano version (the original) of his ever-popular Holberg Suite, normally played in the revised version for string orchestra. As if that were not enough, we have one of Beethoven’s best loved Sonatas, the first pages of what’s been called music’s Old Testament, Bach’s Well-tempered Klavier and a great masterpiece by Haydn.
Grieg Holberg Suite
Beethoven Sonata in F minor, Op 57 “Appassionata”
