Welcome to the second concert of our 10-concert virtual season, From Our House to Yours
Handel: Sonata for violin Op. 1, No. 4
Adagio — Allegro — Larghetto —Allegro
Handel’s wonderful D major violin sonata dates from around 1750, only nine years before his death; the work was not published during his lifetime. It is now considered one of his very finest chamber music works.Some of the music from this Sonata is used in his oratorios Solomon and Jephtha.
Beethoven: Sonata for violin & piano Op. 30, No. 3
Allegro assai — Tempo di minuetto, ma molto moderato e grazioso — Allegro vivace
Beethoven’s Opus 30 sonata in G expresses the tranquility of the summers in the woods near Vienna where he lived while composing this delightful work.
Turning to the 19th century, Ms. Lee has chosen to conclude our concert with a personal favorite: a gem from the legendary violinist Fritz Kreisler: The Midnight Bells Waltz.
Julianne Lee – violin, Dina Vainshtein – piano
