Music in the Round Spring Concert - La Belle Epoque Weekend on Saturday 10th March 2018
RAVEL Tzigane for violin and piano; DEBUSSY Nocturne et Scherzo for cello and piano: RAVEL Berceuse sur le nom de Gabriel Fauré for violin and piano; DEBUSSY Sonata for Cello and Piano; RAVEL Piano Trio.
Part of LA BELLE ÉPOQUE, A French Weekend Festival of Chamber Music and Song from France's Golden Age. In collaboration with the University of Sheffield.Ravel’s Trio, finished just a few days after the outbreak of the First World War, stands alongside Debussy’s Cello Sonata, a work conceived towards its end. Debussy’s work is in one sense traditional, built around ‘Sonata’ form, yet its character is resolutely forward-looking. Ravel’s Tzigane is a bravura piece of showmanship demanding extreme virtuosity. Expect fireworks!
“Eleven international musicians, brimming with body and soul with passion, vitality and virtuosity, whose performances never cease to amaze” The Independent
