Ronald Brautigam’s hammerklavier recital unites two generations of composers – Haydn, Beethoven and Ferdinand Ries – beneath the banner of the fantasy. Haydn is represented by his good-humoured ‘Fantasy in C major’, his successor Beethoven by the Piano Sonata op. 27, no. 1, and the ‘Fantasy in B major’ op. 77. Beethoven’s contemporaries viewed this latter piece as an extension of the improvisations with which he had created a sensation in Vienna. ‘Le rêve’ (The dream) by Beethoven’s friend from Bonn, Ferdinand Ries, approaches the world of romanticism. Beethoven held it in high esteem, and wrote to the composer in London that it had even been learnt by one of his pupils: Archduke Rudolph. What an honour!
