Abstract

The program consisted of musically and technically challenging pieces. Ballade, Sonata No. 3 Op. 27 By Eugene Ysaye is a very demanding and intense work where the tension is growing throughout the piece into a furious culmination. Sonata in A major for piano and violin by Cesar Franck is a romantic melancholic work that was composed as a wedding gift for Eugene Ysaye's wedding. It prompts feelings of tenderness and nostalgia in 1st and 4th movement. The energetic and vigorous fantasia-like 3d movement follows the energetic and vigorous 2d movement. Strauss sonata for violin and piano is a very challenging piece that demands a very sensible and sensitive ensemble between the piano and the violin.
