About the event


Pianist Christopher Harding maintains an active international career, generating acclaim and impressing audiences and critics alike with his substantive interpretations and pianistic mastery. Here at WSU, he will be presenting a recital of three substantial sonatas by Haydn Sonata in C major, Hob.XVI:50, Mozart Sonata in F major, K.332, and Beethoven Sonata Op.111. Each of these sonatas is a ‘landmark’ sonata of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, demanding virtuosic technique and artistic expression. Thomas Mann once claimed the last Beethoven Sonata Op.111 “farewell to sonata form”. These three sonatas will take the audience through the journey of sonata form’s development.
