Tim’s spellbinding exploration of Schubert’s works for solo piano concludes with an unmissable trilogy of Sonatas. Written in 1828, the year of the composer’s death, they have been described as a window to Schubert’s complex character and supreme abilities. 

“This is a programme of Schubert that I’ve always wanted to perform. Along with Schubert’s String Quintet and Winterreise, these pieces are the culmination of a life cut tragically short. They convey such a complexity of emotion from great joy, anger, tenderness and lyricism to, at times, chaos and devastation.” Tim Horton

Post-concert conversation
Tim Horton discusses the importance of Schubert’s piano music with BBC Radio 3’s Tom McKinney, with opportunities for audience questions.
