A formidable duo of artists await you for an exceptional concert, live from the heart of the Swiss Alps. Wonderful violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, accompanied by Joonas Ahonen on piano, will perform two of Beethoven's most tumultuous sonatas, along with works from the first half of the twentieth century.
The concert will begin on a high note with Schoenberg's Phantasy for Violin and Piano, composed in 1949 for Canadian violinist Adolf Koldofsky, followed by Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 7. The program will continue on with Anton Webern's Four Pieces for Violin and Piano, a short work written in 1911 that is appreciated by connoisseurs for its search of new tonalities.
The evening will close in style with Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata, arguably the composer's most technically challenging work for violin and piano. Feel the thrill in the intimate Saanen church, during the course of this astonishing program worthy of the Gstaad Menuhin Festival!
Generously supported by Madame Aline Foriel-Destezet.
