5. Celebrating Beethoven: The Cello Sonatas
If Bach’s six cello suites are often referred to as “the cellist’s bible”, this bible would consist of two books, the second comprising Beethoven’s five sonatas for piano and cello. Before Beethoven wrote the first sonatas, there were virtually no works in which the cello fully broke away from its subservient role of basso continuo to become an equal partner to the piano. They are works of extraordinary breadth and grandeur.
Join Chinese Australian cellist Qin Li-Wei and pianist Albert Tiu – dubbed by The Straits Times as “the most celebrated cello and piano duo resident in Singapore” – as they explore the creative development of Beethoven through the artist’s last three cello sonatas. The highly-positive Sonata in A major, Op. 69 is from his productive middle period, radiating serenity, humour and joy. The final two sonatas, Op. 102, exude the atmosphere of other-worldliness, of transcendent spirituality, that characterise his last utterances.
Celebrating Beethoven: The Cello Sonatas

Tickets start from $38 (not inclusive of SISTIC booking fees). Go here to book them.
