All-Beethoven: Cello and Piano works

Beethoven wrote five cello sonatas. We will hear the last three, which comprise some of the finest music Beethoven wrote.

The Schubert Trios

Trio no. 1 op.99 in B flat and 

Trio no. 2 op.100 in E flat

These are two masterpieces of Schubert's late output. We heard these two trios in October 2015. They were originally scheduled for performance in Bangkok but the performance was cancelled due to the passing of His Majesty the Late King. At Tasana's request, the trios are being rescheduled in Bangkok. We are very fortunate to have a performance at Eelswamp as well.

Thursday 15th, 6pm

Bach Cello in G and D
Dimitri Papadopoulos, piano

Bach wrote three Sonatas for Viola da Gamba. We will hear two of them performed on the modern cello and the two suites for solo cello written in the same key.

No. 2 in D Major BWV 1028

Bach Suites for Cello solo 
No. 1 in G Major BWV 1007

Tasana Nagavajara is the director of the Pro Musica Orchestra, Bangkok and former concertmaster of the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra. He is well known to our audience, having performed many times with the Alexandre and Dimitri as well as with Andrey Gugnin and Pornphan Banternghansa.

Alexandre Vay and Dimitri Papadopoulos are two French musicians who have been playing together since Conservatory days in Lyon. Alexandre is co-soloist in the Munich Radio Orchestra. Dimitri is 'Professeur' at Geneva Conservatory. Alexandre and Dimitri performed the complete Beethoven Cello Sonata and Variation cycle in 2014 at Eelswamp and joined Tasana in 2015 for a performances of the mighty Tchaikovsky Trio in A minor and the Dvorak F minor trio. Their dedication to difficult repertoire, such as the two Schubert trios, which are rarely played together, marks them for distinction.
