Pathways to the Soul

Saturday 27th-Sunday 28th July 2024

Join internationally renowned pianist Dr. Michael Tsalka and cellist Elgee Leung in their soul-searching quest to perform the complete cycle of the seven sonatas for piano and cello by Beethoven and Brahms. Composed between 1796 and 1815, Beethoven’s five sonatas for piano and cello were not only the pioneers in the medium where the two instruments play as a duo with equal significance, but also a concise journey through the composer’s three compositional periods. The baton of continuing the German music traditions with this genre in the Romantic Period was then passed to Brahms, who composed two sonatas for piano and cello in 1862-65 and 1886 respectively. From the young Beethoven to the pinnacle of the Late Romantic Period, the cycle spans the first 90 years of development in one of the most exquisite chamber music genres.
