Piano Masters 4: Dame Imogen Cooper
For her long-awaited return visit to Cedars Hall, the great British pianist presents Beethoven’s epic Diabelli Variations. A monumental work that stands alongside Bach’s Goldberg Variations and Beethoven’s own Missa Solemnis, this is one of the two greatest sets of variations for piano ever written. Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to hear one of the world’s finest musicians up close.
Pre-concert talk by Gavin Plumley on how a cynical marketing stunt by a Vienna music publisher and dilettante composer led Beethoven to transform a trite little waltz tune into a masterpiece. The concert begins at 7.30 pm.
