A prelude to classical music and Beethoven's violin sonatas

Ever wondered what is a sonata? A movement? And just what is the big deal about Beethoven anyway? To round off the year of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, let two award-winning musicians break it down for you. We put pianist Abigail Sin and violinist Loh Jun Hong through a rapid-fire Q&A where they have three minutes to demystify the great German composer’s violin sonatas.

The duo are the co-founders of More Than Music, a Singapore chamber music ensemble known for its candid, interactive presentations of classical music. More Than Music recently performed and recorded for a digital audience the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas, which can be viewed here on Offstage.
