Bach Prelude and Fugue No. 4 in C sharp minor, BWV849
Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 30
Schubert Piano Sonata No. 1 in B flat major, D960
Following his fabulously well-received recital at Buxton Festival in 2016, it is an enormous pleasure to welcome Stephen Kovacevich back for a recital of music that has been in his blood all his life.
Revered for the gentleness, privacy almost, and as the Sunday Times offered, the ‘otherworldliness’ of his insight into Schubert’s great sonatas, his maturity breathes sensitivity alongside authority into all he plays, particularly Beethoven and Bach which feature in this recital programme.
His recitals are truly collector’s items, never to be forgotten, bearing as they do a lifelong service to the composer and the music. He returns to Buxton having recently travelled far and wide, to amongst others Beijing, Los Angeles, Korea, Paris, Brussels and St Petersburg.
