The best of violin and piano

The two virtuosos—Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Huw Watkins—perform a wonderfully eclectic selection of works for piano and violin. As with all duet playing, the skill comes not only knowing one’s part inside out, but being comfortable with one’s duet partner enough share and understand how to express the music in a way that represents both players. These players execute this task with complete mastery. 

First in the concert, we hear Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Sonata No. 5 in F Major op 24 “Spring”. Second Charles Ives’ Sonata No. 5 (excerpt) 2. Decoration Day is heard. Next the duo play Karol Szymanowski’s Nocturne and Tarentella Op. 28. Reflections Op. 31a by Oliver Knussen comes next, followed by Maurice Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Piano. The concert closes with an arrangement of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess Suite. Come on a musical journey with these two expert players.
