Over to Salzburg this week for a concert by Steven Isserlis and Friends, who consist of Joshua Bell and Arisa Fujita, violins, Lawrence Power, viola, Steven Isserlis, cello, Denes Varjon and Izabella Simon, pianos. The concert was recorded on August 7th by the venerable WDR in Germany and relayed to Radio Nacional España Clasica (the reason why there are German and Spanish announcements going on simultaneously). The concert is divided between two players.
Here’s what’s on:
Part 1 (top Player)
1. CLAUDE DEBUSSY • Sonata for Violin and Piano in G minor
2. GABRIEL FAURÉ • Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 1 in D minor, Op. 109
3. IGOR STRAVINSKY • Easy Pieces for Piano Four Hands
4. ZOLTÁN KODÁLY • Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7
Part 2 (bottom player)
EDWARD WILLIAM ELGAR • Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 84
A lovely concert with some great ensemble playing by a little band who alternately go as Joshua Bell and Friends from time to time.
Play in a quiet room.
