Music - Classical, Thu 22 Mar 2018

Details

Two local musicians return to the Barnes Music Festival, performing sonatas by Beethoven and Strauss. The “Spring” Sonata (1802) comes at a time when Beethoven was very much continuing a duo tradition set forth by Mozart, expertly balancing innovation with serene beauty. Beethoven is very often paired with Strauss, both composers writing at key transitional phases in music history. Strauss’ Violin Sonata (1888) offers moments of tranquillity amid the unfolding drama of the first movement whilst the lyrical slow movement is improvisatory and spontaneous in character.
