Max and Mackenzie: Paris, Transylvania, Bergen (oh my!)

Fri, July 17, 2020 7:30 PM, EDT

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our 6th Groupmuse, featuring more beloved duo repertoire.

We begin with Mozart's tragic two-movement Sonata in E Minor, followed by the Six Romanian Folk Dances by Béla Bartók, and we end up north with a rare gem, Grieg's youthful Violin Sonata No.1.

Each Groupmuse, we try and give you eclectic selections from violin/piano canon, and this evening will be no different.

In Paris, following the death of his mother, Mozart wrote the solemn two-movement Sonata in E Minor, the only violin sonata in a minor key, and the only instrumental work in E Minor.

Bartok's Six Roumanian Dances, written in 1915, were originally composed for solo piano. A couple years later, he arranged them for small ensemble, and the violinist Zoltán Székely arranged the work for violin and piano. This is the version you will hear on the program.

To end, we will perform the Violin Sonata No.1 Op.8 by Edvard Grieg. His nationalist spirit shines through with youthful vitality and, at times, pastoral reflection. A rarely heard work on the concert stage, we look forward to bringing this performance to you over the airwaves.

Spread the word! The more the merrier --- until we reach 100!

Stay healthy, and all the best,
Max and Mackenzie
