    Debussy Cello Sonata

    A night of music for cello and piano

    Edward Bettella, 'Sunset Flood'

    Claude Debussy, 'Cello Sonata in D minor'

    Three songs on a Ground Bass:

    Henry Purcell, 'Dido’s Lament'

    Morfydd Owen, 'Gweddi y Pechadur'

    Stevie Wonder, 'They Won’t Go When I Go'

    Interval

    Arvo Pärt, 'Spiegel im Spiegel'

    Edward Bettella, 'Cello Sonata No.1'

    Join composer pianist Edward Bettella and cellist Jonathan Stabler for a performance of Debussy’s late masterpiece, 'Cello Sonata in D minor'. Composed in 1915, this sonata displays Debussy’s full musical range combining dissonance, rich harmony and pentatonic melodies that would have a far-reaching influence on jazz and later modern music.

    The concert also features music by Edward Bettella including the epic 'Cello Sonata No.1', which had its world premiere last year. This modern piece celebrates the heritage of composition for cello and piano, utilising a broad palette of tonal colour and timbre, with a wide range of techniques for both cellist and pianist. This piece was recorded as an EP and copies will be available to purchase after the show.

    Edward Bettella works in several fields: live performance, composition and production music writing for film and art commissions. Edward began his piano studies aged 7 under Brian Ellsbury and is currently studying under Marcia Garcia. In 2015 Edward performed in a masterclass with world-renowned pianist Melvyn Tan.

    Jonathan Stabler studied cello under Alexander Kok and attended Trinity College London. He has worked with London Symphony Orchestra, London Records, Top of the Pops, TFI Friday and travelled extensively with orchestras, chamber groups and bands.
