Showcase concert: Wednesday 8 July
Tonight’s programme includes the earliest work to be performed in the Festival – Biber’s Passacaglia. We also have one of the latest works in Ernst Schliephake’s transcription of a prelude by Rachmaninov for solo violin – clearly he wanted new areas of repertoire to explore. Ysaÿe's 3rd Sonata shows the range of violinistic possibilities from yet another angle.
Three pieces are from the Romantic era, but from three different countries, showing that each composer had different influences on his work, while Dragonetti was the first composer to show that a double bass could be considered as a solo instrument.
This concert will go live at 7.30pm on Wednesday 8 July.
