Details >

Delve into Ludwig van Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas and the internal development of the composer. Ludwig van Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas are characterised by sudden changes in rhythm, astonishing ideas and a certain “bristliness”, which all prevent players from simply rattling them off. They also illustrate how he completed the task of “violin sonata” with the powerful Kreutzer Sonata, which he understood to be something of a double concerto for piano and violin. The late sonata Op 96 seems like a distant memory of this form, which, to a certain extent, Beethoven felt he had already dealt with, and gives us an insight into the realm of his late works.

Beethoven and the viola?

An introduction to the concert Viola, Viola!

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote only a handful of major works for the viola. But why? A unique violin concerto, a whole host of sonata masterpieces for violin and cello – but where are the great viola works from the pen of Beethoven the violist? Yes, that’s right, Beethoven was himself a viola player with the court orchestra of Bonn. Yet despite this, he did not leave major solo viola works for posterity. Dr Norbert Gertsch (of publishing house G. Henle Verlag) tells us how viola players need to dig a little deeper to strike gold with him...
