    Bagatelles after Beethoven*

    As part of the thirty-fifth anniversary celebrations for the Presteigne Festival this year, it was decided to take Beethoven’s masterly set of late piano Bagatelles, Op 126, as a starting point and commission six composers each to write companion pieces based on aspects of Beethoven’s original works. The result is a wonderfully eclectic mini-cycle of piano miniatures.

    Martin Butler 
    Jack Sheen Bagatelle (for Trisha Brown)
    Gabriel Jackson Andante cantabile e grazioso
    Michael Zev Gordon Bagatelle after Beethoven
    Cheryl Frances-Hoad Blurry Bagatelle
    David Knotts Bagatelle: Wienerwalk, Wildewald

  • Beethoven
    Six Bagatelles, Op. 126

Pianist Tim Horton joins us as part of the 2017 Presteigne Festival Tour with a programme of works by Beethoven and a set of newly commissioned Bagatelles, written to celebrate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Presteigne Festival.
