BARTÓK Sonata No.1 for Violin and Piano (33’)
LIGETI Horn Trio Hommage à Brahms (24’)
7.15pm – 8.30pm (no interval)
The music of Hungary is passionate, thrilling and rooted in the country’s own folk music traditions, perhaps best heard in the works of Béla Bartók and György Ligeti, two of the 20th century’s most important composers. Bartók’s First Violin Sonata is a storm of energy interspersed with moments of elegance and beauty; while Ligeti’s Horn Trio is a modern classic that echoes the Brahms Horn Trio with its emotion, as well as featuring dramatic effects from the horn.
