28 October @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Olga Stezhko explores the four-way influence of Beethoven on the early romantic era’s torchbearers in Chopin and Debussy; and in turn on Russian composer Scriabin.
Scriabin’s late piano sonata, No. 8, delves into the deeply mystical, stirring up stark emotional states using strikingly original and stirring harmonies. This is followed by two Chopin Nocturnes and Debussy’s beautiful ‘Pagodes’, which mimics the sounds of Javanese gamelan, an instrument which the composer encountered during the Paris exhibition of 1889. The programme ends with Beethoven’s final piano sonata – arguably the greatest piano sonata ever written, but certainly one which changed the genre forever and had an everlasting influence on all the composers in this afternoon’s programme.
A short note on safety

Although no longer mandatory, we encourage all visitors to wear face coverings when indoors, keep a safe distance from others, use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if able to do so.
