Fri 28 Apr, Sheldonian Theatre
The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. In addition the theatre has become a leading venue for musical concerts and recitals. Please note that tickets for concerts cannot be bought at the Sheldonian.
Please note Semi Circle and Upper Gallery seats do not have backrest.
Capacity: 800 - 1000
Facilities: Toilets (also disabled), No bar
Mozart Sonatas for violin & piano K454, K306, K302
Beethoven Sonata for violin & piano in C minor op. 30 no.2
Rachel Podger and Kristian Bezuidenhout are two of the top exponents of historically informed performance practice. The three sonatas by Mozart for violin and piano are the very embodiment of classical sonata form, while that of Beethoven – dedicated toTsar Alexander I – has all the elegance of the form, while simultaneously pushing at the boundaries and increasing the intensity.
