HSQ on Audubon: Sonata Mashup
***This program may be shortened to allow for in-depth conversation regarding the musical selections, the composers, and the historical context.
The HSQ Sonata Mashup concert features duos and sonatas, featuring Resident Musician Patrick Doane and Andrius Zlabys. The evening will include a set of songs for viola and piano by Florence Price, a groundbreaking African-American composer whose music blends her southern roots with traditional classical studies. Marking a turning point in his musical style, Ravels Sonata for Violin and Cello is one of the first pieces written following Ravels experience as an ambulance driver in World War I, and sheds his impressionistic sound world to create a masterpiece that is both austere and symphonic. The program will also include Mozarts violin sonata in E minor, a work that comes from a period of turmoil in the composers life as he struggled to find employment in Paris following his mothers death. The evening will close with Francks magnificent sonata for violin and piano, written as a wedding gift for the famed violinist Ysaye, and considered to be one of Francks greatest works.
