Beethoven’s Sonatas in prime time on Classica HD

On Friday, 14 April at 9:10 pm, a new cycle begins on Classica HD: the complete Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano with two of the best chamber musicians in Italy.

Ten classics spanning fourteen years of the German composer's creative journey will be performed by violinist Fulvio Luciani and pianist Massimiliano Motterle.

In Violin Sonata no. 1, composed in 1798, the relationship between the piano and the violin is truly sublime, with each instrument alternating between the leading and accompanying roles.

Recorded and produced by Classica HD with the Bracco Foundation in the splendid setting of Villa San Fermo in Lonigo, the cycle completes a journey through Beethoven's sonatas that, back in 2016, saw Fulvio Luciani and Massimiliano Motterle once again as protagonists of a ten-concert cycle entitled "Beethoven, the Invention of Music".

During the pandemic, the Bracco Foundation made the television cycle available on its digital channels as part of #fBacasatua, a multidisciplinary project created to bring culture, music, art and science into everyone's homes.

This year, the complete sonatas for violin and piano will make an exceptional return every Friday at 9.10pm in prime time on Sky Channel 136 from Friday 14 April to 16 June. Each sonata will be introduced by the musician Ugo Martelli,  the face of the channel, in conversation with Fulvio Luciani.
