What is Sunday Morning Piano?
Enjoy an hour of great music in the company of some of the most exciting stars of the piano. Our Sunday Morning Piano series offers a rich mix of classic works and rare gems, from Chopin to Ethel Smyth. Ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake before or after the concert.
Yu Kosuge has built a distinguished career since moving from Japan to Germany in the 1990s. Here she performs two dynamic sonatas from a youthful Mendelssohn and the Heroic Beethoven. At the age of 20, Mendelssohn was yet to visit Scotland, but his fantasy sonata captures the sounds of the country’s folk music with a restless energy and a warlike finale. Beethoven’s great Waldstein Sonata has been described as a “symphony masquerading as a sonata”, its broad colours shot through with powerful energy. Contrasting these, Yu shows us the tranquil side of Christmas, with four calming pieces from Liszt’s Christmas Tree suite.
