About

Sunday at St John's, 70th Birthday Celebrations

Julian Jacobson

piano

Beethoven

Piano Sonata No. 8 Op. 13 Pathetique'

Schubert

Piano Sonata No. 20 in A D959

Prokofiev

Piano Sonata No. 8 Op. 84

Written on the cusp of the 19th century, Beethoven's "Pathetique" proves him to be the man for the new age, with its urgently dramatic opening and glorious, already "Romantic" slow movement.

Schubert's great A major Sonata, "heavenly long" (Schumann), is perhaps his most accomplished. Prokofiev's 8th Sonata counters the violence of the 6th and 7th with something much more Olympian, almost Shakespearian in its depth and humanity.
