Description

April’s program opens with the exuberant virtuosity of Lowell Leibermann’s Flute Sonata; a 1988 work written to explore the colour and technical ranges of both the flute & piano. Following Liebermann’s sonata is Witold Lutoslawski’s Partita for Violin and Piano – equally demanding technically – but with a force that drives the program into the realm of deeper substance.

The progam’s nucleus resides in the 2nd half of the concert : Shostakovitch’s Opus 67 Piano Trio. This composer’s music speaks with a relevance that is both of, and beyond, his time. About the piece pianist Emanuel Ax says, “I feel that all mankind can respond to his anguish – anguish that hatred, whether racial or political, should exist anywhere.”

Program:

  • Liebermann: Flute Sonata
  • Lutolawski: Parita for Violin and Piano
  • Shostakovitch: Trio No. 2 for Piano, Violin & Cello in E Minor, Opus 67
