John Lill is one of the world’s greatest interpreters of Beethoven’s piano music and is a frequent visitor to the Festival. He returns to give an all-Beethoven recital as part of our celebrations of the composer’s 250th anniversary.
Bringing together four of Beethoven’s most well-known sonatas, this afternoon recital will be a true celebration of the piano and a high-point of this year’s programme.
