BBC Radio 3 Chamber Music: Beethoven Roots Festival - Louis Lortie plays Piano Sonatas 4 and 26

When Beethoven was young, the piano was unrecognisable as the instrument we know today. By the end of his life, it was transformed, in part, by the imagination, scope and expressive power of his own music. Louis Lortie pairs the grandeur of Beethoven’s most ambitious early sonata with the concentrated emotion of Les Adieux, played by an artist who is, in the words of Gramophone magazine, “living proof that you can maintain an individual and distinctive voice while remaining scrupulously true to the composer”. Beethoven Piano Sonata No.4, in E flat major, Op.7 ‘Grand Sonata’ Beethoven Piano Sonata No.26, in E flat major, Op.81a ‘Les Adieux’ Louis Lortie piano Multi-buy - available until 28 February 2020 - 5 BBC SSO concerts £40 (saving £5);  3 BBC Radio 3 Chamber Music Concerts £18 (saving £3)
