A Beethoven cycle with a difference! Over a weekend of concerts, respected chamber musicians Krysia Osostowicz and Daniel Tong perform all ten Beethoven Sonatas for violin and piano. And to give the cycle an extra dimension, Osostowicz and Tong have commissioned ten composers each to write a short companion piece inspired by one of the sonatas, thus creating a fascinating musical conversation across two centuries.
