‘I believe Schubert knew very precisely that he was dealing with the heart of the matter’ says Lars Vogt – and for him, Schubert’s late music ‘is dealing directly with life and death’. Sage Gateshead audiences don’t need to be told just how profoundly – and how emotionally – Royal Northern Sinfonia’s Music Director approaches the classics, but in this beautifully conceived recital his performance of Schubert’s majestic last sonata comes as the climax of a sequence of pieces that contrast the life-affirming grace of Mozart with the grand passions of Liszt and the raw, unvarnished feeling of Leos Janáček’s explosive Sonata.

Mozart’s Sonata No.2 K280
