Ludwig van Beethoven stands as a giant in music history for his revolutionary symphonies, heroic piano concertos and dramatic string quartets.
This programme bring to the light the younger Beethoven’s facility as a creator of glow and entertaining chamber works as well as the arrangements of folksongs from op. 107. Written when he was in his early twenties, the Sonata for flute and piano n B-flat WoO 4 was unpublished until 1906, when a selection of works were released posthumously. Better known as „Spring Sonata“ (the name was given after Beethoven’s death), the Sonata No. 5 op. 24 is the first Beethoven’s violins sonatas to have four movements, nearing the end of what scholars have often referred to as his „first period“, a time of growth and development based on the models of the great classical forebears.
