Programme Notes

Their concert is an evening of music as conversation, the eloquent dialogue of piano and violin in four great sonata works. Mozart's K. 301 sonata is wonderfully expressive with graceful exchanges between piano and violin. In Beethoven's Op. 23 sonata violin and piano tussle in complex dialogues- often witty and enigmatic, sometimes fiery then reserved, sometimes hesitant then forceful - but always beautiful. Mozart's K. 570 sonata is the gentle musing of an intelligent mind quietly contemplating life. While Saint-Saëns' sonata is a dramatic exchange of challenging ideas and heroic themes.
