The evening of sonats for Violin & Piano R. AN | L. JANACEK | E. GRIEG | A. SCHNITTKE
Сashes of chamber repertoire performed by outstanding representatives of the new generation of the Moscow Conservatory can be heard right in Prague. This sonatas for violin and piano are not common guests of concert programmes, however this kind of music contains genuine kaleidoscope of styles, which interchange harmonically through the centuries of XIX and XX. We mean Sonata №3 of Norwegian genius E. Grig, known among experts due to Rachmaninov's and Kreisler's phenomenal recording. As a surprise, quite unknow, but as good as the famous masterpieces of French classic music, sonata of Reynaldo Hahn (the student of Gabriel Faure and Francis Poulenc) will be performed. Not to mention the Alfred Schnittke full of spiritual, satirical and social content sonata. It is musically compound, written in serial dodecaphonic technique, but at the same time film effects, dances, jazz and subjects of popular hits make it easy to understand for everyone and everybody. As the tribute to the Czech Republic, duo Budnetsky Gavrouc will play the sonata of Czech composer Leoš Janáček. It will be a treasure of Czech music, inspired by the era of the First World War, folk motives and pictures of native nature. Gathered together, these four sonatas will sound like a single story about human destiny.
