Beethoven Spring Sonata
Szymanowski Myths
Schumann Sonata No 2 in D Minor

Piotr Anderszewski piano
Frank Peter Zimmermann violin

The highly-acclaimed and famously perfectionist Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski returns to the Barbican with Frank Peter Zimmermann, a German violinist whose excellence in the cornerstones of the repertoire is paired with an inquisitive appetite for musical exploration.

Beethoven's aptly titled 'Spring' sonata is among the most delightful, joyful and engagingly melodic of all the pieces he wrote for both piano and violin. Playful and humorous, when performed by two communicative musicians, such as these, it is not hard to see why it is also one of the most popular.

With Szymanowski's Myths we are in a completely different world – a beguiling and mysterious impressionistic sound-scape, and a deservedly treasured highlight of its composer's oeuvre.

Promoted by the Barbican.

‘Zimmermann played with immaculate, understated dexterity.’ The Guardian
