The final evening dedicated to Beethoven’s violin sonatas opens with two of the Op. 30 sonatas, composed in 1802, during the traumatic period in which Beethoven was battling with the realisation that he was becoming deaf. This inevitable truth almost drove him to despair, leading him to contemplate suicide. His emotional pain prompted a frenzy of creativity. In addition to the Op. 30 violin sonatas he composed the Op. 31 piano sonatas, the Op. 33 bagatelles for solo piano and his Second Symphony. Beethoven composed his tenth and final violin sonata, Op. 96, in 1812. It was to be the last work of his so-called Middle Period. The sonata is imbued with a reflective mood and characterised by dense thematic material.
