A Classical A-Z – Playlist for 15th April
Written by marksmith on April 14, 2012
Today’s Classical A-Z is brought to you by the letter A and the Letter B. This weeks show is dedicated to the Austrian pianist, poet and writer Alfred Brendel, one of the finest pianist of the last 50 years who only retired from the concert stage 4 years ago. His repertoire did not range enormously wide and he played very little 20th Century Music but he is one of the finest interpreters of the core classical such as Haydn Mozart Beethoven and Schubert and was only the second player to perform the complete cycle of Beethoven sonatas at Carnegie Hall. The show is going to mirror his main repertoire and will feature works by those 4 composers.
F.J Haydn F minor Variations, Hob.XVII:6
W.A Mozart Concerto No 9 in Eb KV271 [Jeunehomme] – Allegro
F. Schubert Piano Sonata in G major, D894 – I. Molto moderato e cantabile
L. v Beethoven Piano Sonatas No. 30 Op. 109
