Music in the Round's Beethoven 250 celebrations continue with a performance of his last three piano sonatas by the acclaimed pianist, Steven Osborne.

The last of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, these three sublime pieces were commissioned by Beethoven’s publisher almost 200 years ago, in April 1820. They form a trio of beautifully balanced and contrasting works that are best heard as a set, with each sonata exploring a wide range of technique and emotion, from extreme delicacy to muscular firepower.

Steven Osborne is widely celebrated as a thrilling performer. His 2019 recording of these Beethoven Sonatas was acclaimed as among his finest and this recital promises to be an electrifying experience.

“Osborne occupies the very different world of each sonata with equal conviction. A magnificent achievement.” Gramophone Magazine
