Christoph Richter cello; Alasdair Beatson piano

Brahms, Webern and Beethoven


  • Christoph Richter cello
  • Alasdair Beatson piano

Sonatas for cello and piano were still rare birds when Beethoven made his first mark on the genre. His Cello Sonata No. 1 Op. 38 was written in 1796 to delight the cello-playing King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II.

Christoph Richter and Alasdair Beatson’s Coffee Concert programme also explores the thematic intricacies of Brahms’s Bach-inspired Op. 38 and Webern’s coruscating Op. 11 miniatures.

  • Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
        • Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor Op. 38
  • Anton Webern (1883-1945)
        • Drei kleine Stücke Op. 11
  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
        • Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor Op. 5 No. 2
