Musical Discovery Weekend

‘The Kreutzer Sonata’

2.00pm Saturday 22nd April – 4.30pm Sunday 23rd April 2017

Spend a weekend immersed in chamber music in the magnificent setting of Clytha Park and discover the inner workings of two of Beethoven’s best-loved sonatas in the company of two of Britain’s leading chamber musicians; Daniel Tong will lead sessions from the piano, alongside duo partner Krysia Osostowicz, violin.

  • Beethoven Sonata in F, op. 24 Spring
  • Beethoven Sonata in A, op. 47 Kreutzer

Beethoven’s thrilling Kreutzer Sonata is part of an intriguing story, originating with its hasty composition and legendary premiere, and continuing through responses by Leo Tolstoy and then Leoš Janačék. One of the most iconic works in the repertoire, why has it inspired such impassioned reactions? Our weekend will look inside the score of this and another masterpiece, the Spring Sonatato see how Beethoven fashioned two hugely contrasting works of genius and how we might begin to interpret them.

The weekend will include study sessions, performances, discussion and Q&A as well as meals with the musicians and hosts.

Tickets: £120 per person
(or £70 per individual day. Priority given to those attending for the full weekend).

Price includes all sessions, garden visit and dinner on Saturday, study sessions, lunch and final concert on Sunday. Recommended local accommodation available on request.
