Miklós Perényi and András Schiff, both alumni of the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest, constitute a long-established musical partnership. BBC Music Magazine has spoken of their “sparkle and vitality” in Beethoven, adding that “there’s also a gripping sense of purpose, symphonic in essence, but never forgetting that this is chamber music: intimate and subtle in scale and detail.”

This is the first of the duo’s two all-Beethoven recitals – embracing the five cello sonatas and other works for cello and piano – at this year’s Festival. As the Guardian wrote after concerts by Perényi and Schiff at the Schubertiade in Austria: “[Their] shared life of music-making was apparent in every gesture and phrase of two all-Beethoven programmes … We were witnessing musical acts of friendship, subtlety and understanding.”
