1823 Lecture | Alfred Brendel

Where: St George's Bristol, Great George Street, BS1 5RR

When: 24 January 2017 5:30pm to 6:30pm

BEETHOVEN’S LAST SONATAS AND HIS LATE STYLE

Although he regrettably retired from concert performing some years ago, Alfred Brendel hasn’t turned his back on the stage entirely.  These days he tours the world’s great concert venues as a lecturer, imparting his vast knowledge of music with both wit and wisdom.  For this second ‘1823 Lecture’, presented in association with the University of Bristol, Brendel discusses Beethoven’s final piano sonatas.  They are the magnificent conclusion of a series of works that covers most of the composer’s lifetime, but how do they relate to Beethoven the man? How were they sonatas received? And what do they mean to us today?
