What Makes It Great? Beethoven
Rob Kapilow, commentator
Sophie Shao, cello
Ieva Jokubaviciute, piano
Beethoven: Cello Sonata in A major, Op. 69


Beethoven's body of work includes 32 piano and ten violin sonatas, but only five sonatas written for cello. The latter are the first to be written without doubling the left-hand piano line or essentially presenting a piano sonata with cello obbligato. Thus, Beethoven is credited with creating the first cello sonatas with individual themes for both instruments. Kapliow will lead the audience to more revelations in this program featuring Avery Fisher Career Grant cellist Sophie Shao and pianist Leva Jokubaviciute, described by The New York Times as "an artist of commanding technique and persuasive insight."

In program notes from the work's world premiere, Bjarnason says "One of the things I thought about was seeing the Pacific Ocean for the first time and realizing how incredibly different it was from the Atlantic Ocean. The brightness and energy and the way it radiates is so powerful and beautiful."
