Playing on Sunday 4 Jun 2017

Haydn and Mozart were inspired by the newly invented ‘fortepiano’, with its delicate touch and ability to bring out a wide range of colour and dynamics.  At the height of their compositional powers, each wrote sonatas which pre- empt the works of Beethoven, and are perfect examples of the classical sonata form.


John Irving, playing an 18 th century fortepiano copy (the precursor of the pianoforte), is internationally acclaimed for his ‘sensitive and delicate touch… exquisitely judged balance’ which brings out ‘the colours and beauties of the piano’.
