Celebrating 250 years since the birth of Beethoven, Matthew Barley and friends examine Ludwig’s life through the prism of his cello sonatas.

Arguably better known in his lifetime as a improviser than a composer, Beethoven’s life is vividly brought to life through fascinating discussions, improvisation and performance.
