Geoffrey Govier – piano
Beethoven Sonata in E minor, Op. 90
Schubert 4 Impromptus, D899
Schubert Sonata in E minor, D566
Beethoven Eroica Variations, Op. 35
Geoffrey Govier is one of the leading British exponents of the early piano. He performed a complete cycle of Mozart piano sonatas in a series of recitals at Hatchlands recently. He is Professor of Fortepiano at RCM and has served on the jury of a number of international fortepiano competitions
This programme presents two great E minor sonatas: Schubert’s D.566 and Beethoven’s op. 90 in which the similarities of the composers are quite evident. The other works featured, Schubert’s first book of Impromptus and Beethoven’s Eroica Variations, perhaps demonstrate what causes audiences to form such a contrasting image of the two.
