    A festival of inspiration

    Cyclical contemplation as the counterpoint to linear design. Tchaikovsky’s »The Seasons«, a work comprising twelve epigrams of the densest poetry, is contrasted in Denis Matsuev’s recital by the composer’s affecting Méditation. Beethoven’s penultimate piano sonata exemplifies the notion of linear development towards a climax; the work’s Finale is in fact the main movement. Prokofiev’s Seventh Piano Sonata further explores the possibilities of sound and form in uncompromising fashion.
