St Andrew’s Cathedral, Aberdeen



Beethoven Plus is a Beethoven cycle with a new dimension: Krysia and Daniel invited ten composers to each write a short companion piece inspired by one of Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas. These new pieces – each about 5 minutes long – are heard together with the original sonatas, creating conversations between living composers and Beethoven, and shedding new light on what Beethoven’s music means to us today. The ten pairs will be played in five concerts over the next six days. Today’s concert comprises two of these pairs:


Jeremy Thurlow Champagne Plus

Beethoven Violin Sonata no. 8 in G Major, op. 30, no. 3

Kurt Schwertsik On the Way to Heiligenstadt

Beethoven Violin Sonata no. 6 in A major, op. 30, no. 1
