Beethoven

'Eroica' Variations Op. 35

Schubert

Four Impromptus D899

Piano Sonata No. 6 in A Op. 82

One of the great affirmations in musical history, Beethoven's magnificent set of variations on the same theme as the finale of the later 'Eroica' Symphony was written within a few months of the composer's despairing 'Heiligenstadt' Testament.

Proceeding via Schubert's much more spontaneous and lyrical Impromptus, the programme culminates in Prokofiev's savage, sardonic wartime Sonata No. 6 which, nonetheless, contains moments of repose, nostalgia and wit.
