Ledra Music Soloists invites you to a piano recital by Nicolas Costantinou in honour of the 250th anniversary of the birth of the imposing, pioneering and deeply human Ludwig van Beethoven. The date, which also marks the end of the celebrations, is significant, being the composer’s christening date (the exact date of birth has not been documented, but, based on contemporary practices, it is estimated that he was born the day before). The recital features the last three piano sonatas, an enigmatic and extremely personal triptych from the late period, written during the years 1820–21. In these works, each with its own distinct qualities, the composer frees himself from tradition (rather than discard it) and expresses himself with honesty and sincerity, in an unprecedented way.
