As we all know, Beethoven missed out on so many of his 250th birthday celebrations in the wash-out year that was 2020. It might now be March 2021, but we are still celebrating his brilliance and his ground-breaking contribution to the cello sonata form.
MfG Artistic Director Finghin Collins is joined by five different cellists for a marathon performance of all five of Beethoven’s cello sonatas, spanning his entire career.
Musicologist Richard Wigmore provides engaging insights on the composer’s life, the historical context and the music itself.
