Sonates pour Violon et Piano

Lincoln Recital Hall, Portland
7:30 pm

Tomas Cotik and Grace Choi present a tour de force through the Sonata genre, which developed in France and inspired Mozart's early Sonatas. Mozart's dialogue' Sonata K. 301 is followed by one of the best-known compositions in the genre, César Franck's Sonata in A. This Sonata features an amalgam of his rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions Frack valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework. It was written in 1886 as a wedding present for the 28-year-old violinist Eugène Ysaÿe. The program finishes with Francis Poulenc Violin Sonata, composed in memory of the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca and premiered by the violinist Ginette Neveu with the composer at the piano on 1943 in Paris. It represents a marked contrast to Cesar Franck's Sonata. Poulenc wrote: "The monster is finished. I will begin the realization. It is not bad, I think, and in any case very different from the eternal "violin-melody line" of the French sonatas of the 19th century.... The violin prima donna over piano arpeggio makes me vomit."

Mozart: Sonata for Violin and Piano, K. 301.

Poulenc: Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op. 119.

Franck: Sonata in A for Violin and Piano
