Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 22 October 2017
Coming up on Vox Nostra. - December 16th
Vlad never limits the reach of Vox Nostra when it comes to exquisite music--
all it takes is for it to be historically informed. More and more ensembles are now undertaking music by the Romantic and Classical masters with historical context in their hearts, and earlier instruments in their hands.
This Sunday's programme gives a warm welcome to ensembles and soloists undertaking one of Western music's most impassioned composer-performers: Ludwig van Beethoven, whose 248 years ago on this day. Explore the string quartets of Beethoven's Op.18 played by the Eybler Quartet, hear Anner Bilsma delight in his sonatas for 'cello together with Jos van Immerseel.
The Sunday Sonata gets the Ludwig treatment as well, as Susanna Ogata and Ian Watson bring to life his Op.12 for our mid-programme feature, from the most recent release from Coro of Beethoven's complete sonatas for violin and fortepiano.
