Pianist Chris Cartner brings to a close the Resonance concert series for 2015 series with a programme featuring two of the greatest works ever conceived for the piano – the Piano Sonata in c# opus 27 no. 2, “Moonlight” by Beethoven and the Piano Sonata in b minor by Chopin.
Beethoven marked his op.27 no.2 sonata as a “fantasy”. The haunting effects of its opening movement have earned its “Moonlight” nickname, yet its playful second movement and violently dramatic finale remind us of the exceptional power of Beethoven’s music.
Chopin’s Sonata in B minor was his last major work before his tragically early death. It is within this sonata that we hear the absolute pinnacle of piano composition. The brilliance and depth of the writing lie within its glorious melodies and staggering development of themes. The sonata is a legacy of perhaps the greatest piano-composer of all time.
