Violinist Chloë Hanslip has been a regular visitor over many years. She and pianist Danny Driver present a complete cycle of Beethoven’s violin sonatas – a first for the artists and for Turner Sims. These 10 works re-defined the landscape for the violin and piano repertoire. Across three concerts we have the opportunity to understand them with insights from Chloë and Danny and other contributors. It promises to be a fascinating journey.
All but one of Beethoven’s ten sonatas were composed over a six-year period when the composer was in his late twenties and early thirties. Tonight’s first recital in Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver’s series features works from the first two sets of three, Op 12 and Op 30.
