Mozart Sonata in C major K545
Fantasie in C
Mozart’s well-loved sonata opens the programme from the distinguished pianist. To follow are two works by Schumann. The eight pieces which comprise his Kreisleriana were inspired by Johannes Kreisler, an eccentric character from ETA Hoffman’s novels, whilst the Fantasie in C was composed during a long separation from his future wife Clara. He described the work to her as ‘The most passionate thing I have ever composed – a deep lament for you’.
