BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Nicola Benedetti and Friends

Thu 1 Mar 2012 1pm - Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke's, London

Overview

Nicola Benedetti

Nicola Benedetti

RAVEL Violin Sonata
RAVEL Tzigane
STRAUSS Violin Sonata in E flat major Op 18

Nicola Benedetti violin
Alexei Grynyuk piano

Ravel claimed that in writing his sonata for ‘two fundamentally incompatible instruments [violin and piano], I assumed the task, far from bringing their differences into equilibrium, of emphasising their irreconcilability through their independence’. The French word for ‘gypsy’, Tzigane, musically illustrates Ravel’s interest in gypsy folklore. Strauss composed his Violin Sonata while drenched in the romance of his relationship with Pauline de Ahna, who later became his wife.
