The Art of Fugue

PLEASE NOTE: The date of this concert has changed to December 3rd at 6.30pm. Ticket holders are being contacted.

In his ultimate, enigmatic masterpiece, J.S. Bach traverses the full spectrum of contrapuntal possibilities with endlessly astonishing inventiveness. This compelling new take on the Art of Fugue sees pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go move seamlessly between solo, four-hand and two-piano playing, in an exploration that reveals and highlights Bach’s scope for deep introspection and sublime joy.

Beethoven: The Complete Cello Sonatas (UKARIA)

‘A journey through this cycle is like time travel. These works are a cornerstone of my artistic identity.’

– Timo-Veikko Valve

‘When it comes to Beethoven, pianists are exceptionally lucky. Beethoven turned to the piano more often than any other instrument, leaving us with a body of work that expresses the struggle, suffering, and despair of the human condition, right alongside the joy and humour – ultimately the unvanquishable human spirit.’

– Aura Go

Experiencing the cycle in one day gives us an especially intimate conversation with Beethoven, meeting him at various times across his life. There is a special alchemy between the instruments in these works, the piano and cello completely equal, fully evolved partners.
