Declared impossible to play by its dedicatee, Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata is a pinnacle of its genre, demanding musical and technical assurance of the highest order. Solo Cellist Mats Lidström performs Prokofiev’s warmly expressive Cello Sonata, a work with which the composer won over the 1949 Soviet authorities. Timeless in their artistic identity and architecturally revolutionary, Beethoven’s late string quartets have astounded ever since their inception – the Quartet in C sharp minor is a colossal musical statement that continues to transcend contemporary boundaries.
