Ingrid, Gerling, Violin, Carmen, Respighi, Saint-Saens
This recital's program consists of Romantic works, which are part of the standard repertoire for violin. The Carmen Fantasy composed by Pablo de Sarasate is one of the most popular showpieces for the violin. The Violin Sonata by Ottorino Respighi is not as well known as other violin sonatas, but is gradually gaining more exposure. The Saint-Saens Sonata No. 1 is a very energetic and virtuosic work that showcases Saint-Saens brilliant compositional talents. These three pieces came together in this recital to produce and challenging and exciting program, which was both entertaining to the audience, and an excellent learning experience for the performers.
