"… Brilliant - a super treat – most enjoyable. Well done!… What a treat to listen to Carole Presland… Carole's playing, as ever, quite inspiring" Audience members 2013

Only Papa Haydn could append the score of his profoundly-felt variations with the self-deprecating line 'Un piccolo divertimento'. It was Beethoven's patron Count Ferdinand Ernst Gabriel von Waldstein who recommended the young man to Haydn and arranged a scholarship for him. His entry in Beethoven's friendship book on the composer's departure for Vienna in November 1792 reads: "Dear Beethoven! You go to realise a long-desired wish: the genius of Mozart is still in mourning and weeps for the death of its disciple... By incessant application, receive Mozart's spirit from Haydn's hands." Schubert's monumental last sonata is rich in the romanticism foreshadowed in Haydn's work.
This concert is dedicated to the memory of Margaret and Derrick Johnson.
