6:45pm pre-concert talk by James Lisney
Sonata in a, D 537
Sonata in A, D 664
Sonata in A, D 959
Over four concerts, spread through the Series, James Lisney takes us on an exploration of Schubert’s eleven completed piano sonatas. Lisney has gained authority over this repertoire with acclaimed recordings and cyclic presentations at London’s South Bank Centre, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw; he will also be taking his innovative Schubertreise series to Mumbai.
As with all four of the concerts, tonight’s programme draws from a wide range of Schubert’s thirteen year involvement with the piano sonata.
