    SCHUBERT Sonata in A Major, D. 664

    BEETHOVEN Diabelli Variations, op. 120

    One of the piano world’s rising stars, praised for “brave, original playing” (Guardian) and performances “exploding with pure joie de vivre” (BBC Music Magazine), Filippo Gorini returns to PPI with a program exploring the vast range of human emotion.

    Charting a journey of tragedy and turmoil, Berg’s only piano sonata is a work of searing intensity written at the crossroads of romanticism and modernism, while Schubert’s bucolic Sonata in A Major lyrically evokes the beauty of summer in the Austrian countryside. And in his towering Diabelli Variations, Beethoven uses a simple waltz as the springboard for daring feats of musical expression fueled by the composer’s boundless imagination.
