Event details

‘The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world.’ Edgar Allan Poe

Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata spawned generations of future work, not least Tolstoy’s troubling novella, The Kreutzer Sonata. Drawing on the writings of both Tolstoy and Sofia Tolstoya, Melbourne Recital Centre’s 2020 Artist and Writer-in-Residence Anna Goldsworthy retells this story of male jealousy and violence from the perspective of the murdered wife. Anna’s reading accompanies a performance of the Sonata with celebrated violinist Andrew Haveron.
