Steven Isserlis & Alasdair Beatson
Steven Isserlis returns to the JdP with a group of three sonatas, each of which manages to fuse elements of lyricism and of formal dynamism—Bach’s First Gamba Sonata, Beethoven’s popular A major Cello Sonata and Steven’s own transcription of the Schumann Third Violin Sonata. The recital concludes with well-loved shorter pieces by Fauré and Schumann.
Bach: Gamba Sonata No.1
Beethoven: Sonata No.3
Fauré: Romance, Elegy
Schumann: Violin Sonata No. 3 (arr. Isserlis)
