PROKOFIEV Five Melodies: Selections
ARVO PÄRT Fratres
PROKOFIEV Violin Sonata No.2
DEBUSSY Violin Sonata
BEETHOVEN Violin Sonata No.10 in G

 

Pianist Steven Osborne’s recent concerts with us were hailed as “the most thrilling musical memory of the entire 2012 season” (The Australian), “an evening of pure delight” (West Australian) and “a ripsnorter of a performance” (News Local) so it’s no surprise Richard Tognetti chose Osborne to partner in this rare and intimate recital.

Together they perform three violin sonatas, Prokofiev’s virtuosic and lyrical showpiece, Debussy’s powerful last-ever completed work and the final and most reflective of Beethoven’s violin sonatas.

The concert opens with Prokofiev’s lyrical and graceful melodies and Fratres, described by Tognetti as "Arvo Pärt at his instrumental best."
