Chopin, Franchomme and the Cello Sonata

Free tickets available from the Academy’s Box Office. These tickets will not be available online

Chopin famously wrote for little other than the piano, yet within his oeuvre is a handful of pieces for cello and piano that includes the Cello Sonata, Op 65, a substantial work that gained posthumous recognition. The relative prominence of the cello has been attributed to his friend Auguste Franchomme. In this lecture-recital doctoral student Job ter Haar and Honorary Research Fellow Dr Olivia Sham explore this partnership. The session concludes with a performance of the sonata using a piano by Pleyel, Chopin’s favoured piano maker.
