Chamber Concert by Gina Mccormack (Violin) & Nigel Clayton (Piano)
Sunday 4 October 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Haddo Arts Festival 2020
Clara Schumann Andante molto from Three Romances Op 22
Ludwig van Beethoven Sonata in D, Op 12 no. 1 (Allegro con brio, Tema con Variazioni (Andante con moto), Rondo (Allegro))
Claude Debussy Sonata in G minor, L140
Join us on our YouTube Channel at 3.00 pm on Sunday 4 October for an hour of violin and piano music by the long established pairing of violinist Gina McCormack and pianist Nigel Clayton.
The recital begins with the first of three romances composed by Clara Schumann in memory of her husband, Robert, who died tragically young. They follow this with Beethoven’s Sonata in D op 12 No 1. Still under the influence of his classical masters Haydn and Mozart, this early work is a joyous piece with asking as much virtuosity from the piano as from the violin.
Debussy’s Violin Sonata, his last composition, pays homage to Couperin and Rameau, the great composers of the 18th century. Throughout the Sonata’s three contrasting movements both players are in perfect balance with each other, playing an equal part in the musical discussion.
Gina and Nigel finish their recital with three well known and popular pieces by Kreisler.
