Swindon Recital Series - Notturno

Beethoven and Schubert both suffered physically during their lifetimes and endured periods of deep depression but still managed to write music that is enjoyed today. Accompanied by Paul Turner, Thomas Carroll, much in demand around the globe, on radio and on CD, will play Beethoven’s Sonata in A major, composed when he was acutely deaf but, according to famed cellist Steven Isserlis,’..one of the most positive works imaginable; from the opening phrase it radiates serenity, humour and joy.’ Carroll follows this with Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata. Written when Schubert’s health had deteriorated significantly the piece exhibits frequent and abrupt shifts of mood from bright and cheerful to dark and brooding. The programme ends with Brahms’ Sonata in E minor, described by the composer, who performed this piece himself, as ‘certainly not difficult to play’ for either piano or cello, a view not generally shared from then till now.
Tickets £12, seniors £10, students £2.50, accompanied children 14 and under free
