Broyhill Chamber Ensemble: Reflections: Part One
“Reflections: Part One” showcases the singularly expressive range of the violin and the diverse manner in which composers have exploited it. The use of musical dialogue will be contrasted with performances of Beethoven’s Violin Sonata and Webern’s Four Pieces for violin and piano. The influence of J.S. Bach on all composers who followed will be highlighted by his Partita in E Major, performed as originally written, and with Robert Schumann's piano accompaniment added 130 years later, as well as an homage to Bach written in Lithuania 200 years later. The program will conclude with two very different uses of Eastern European folk music: selections from Barto´k’s Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs and Ravel’s virtuosic show piece, Tzigane.
