Love and Despair

Two intensely moving pieces by Beethoven and Schubert. International soloist Ay?en Ulucan and prize-winning pianist Francis Rayner bring you Beethoven’s Violin Sonata, in C Minor. Schubert’s epic song cycle ‘Winterreise’ performed by baritone Marcio da Silva completes this reflective programme. Beethoven’s Violin Sonata op.30 No.2 was completed during a period of anguish in the composer’s most grim tonality: C minor. Schubert’s darkest and most intense song cycle, ‘Winterreise’, was written towards the end of his short life. Setting poems by Wilhelm Mu?ller, the work explores feelings of love, doubt and loss.

Vespro della Beata Vergine – Monteverdi Monteverdi’s most ambitious choral piece. This programme is a full-scale Baroque explosion, with period instruments, a lute, organ, double chorus and soloists. Written in 1610, this piece was monumental in scale, calling for up to 10 vocal parts in some movements, not to mention six soloists and an orchestra. The Vespers are a prime representation of Monteverdi’s genius.
