Over to Barcelona this week for a concert recorded by Radio Nacional Espana on December 2nd of last year featuring two up-and-comers and rising-young-stars from Belgium; violinist Lorenzo Gatto and Pianist Eliane Reyes in a recital of music by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saens, Ysaye and Prokofiev.
The concert, at just a little under 90 minutes, is broken up over two players.
The first part (top player) features the Mozart Sonata K. 454, the Tchaikovsky Valse-Scherzo op. 34 and the Saint-Saens Rondo Capriccioso op. 28. The second part (bottom player) features the Ysaye Sonata for solo violin op. 27 "Ballade" and concludes with the Prokofiev Sonata for Violin and Piano Op. 94 - and as always, there's an encore.
A very nice and well received concert, guaranteed to calm things down a bit.
As always, the notes are below:
