Pre-Concert Talk with Robert Hugill, 5:30pm | The History of the Cello Sonata
British composer, journalist, and lecturer Robert Hugill returns to Conway Hall for a free pre-concert talk exploring the evening's programme of music.
Growing out of the continuo sonata, the history of the cello sonata is one of the liberation of the cello. In early sonatas it doubled the keyboard, and we look at how the sonata moved towards the romantic, dramatic music of Brahms and Shostakovich.
