International soloist, chamber musician and much sought-after teacher, Fali Pavri, returns to Mumbai to perform a solo recital featuring the last piano sonatas of three giants in the Western classical canon. According to Pavri: The Haydn sonata is revolutionary in how it exploits the sonorities and capabilities of the then newly-developed instrument. The Beethoven takes one on a philosophical journey from the earthly struggles in the first movement to a state of almost Zen-like peace and enlightenment at the end of the Adagio. The Schubert B flat sonata is a vast landscape that conveys all it is to be human—serenity and acceptance, grief, loneliness and ultimately, joy.
