109a Iffley Road,
Krysia Osostowicz, violin
Daniel Tong, piano
Beethoven Plus! emerged from Krysia and Daniel’s experience of working together on the ten Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano. Looking for a new dimension to shed light on the music in a contemporary setting, they had the idea of inviting composers each to write a short companion piece inspired by one of the sonatas. These new pieces, heard together with the original sonatas, create fascinating conversations between the living composers and Beethoven. Composers of the new companion pieces are: Peter Ash, Judith Bingham, Elspeth Brooke, Jonathan Dove, David Matthews, Kurt Schwertsik, Matthew Taylor, Jeremy Thurlow, Philip Venables and Huw Watkins.
Duration: 2 hours 45mins
