Works for violin and piano

The violin and the piano, though very different instruments in terms of their construction and the way in which they are played, have always been the most compatible of musical companions. Indeed, their every encounter can be relied upon to set the musical sparks flying! This evening’s programme includes well-known works, but also delves into less frequented corners of the vast piano and violin repertoire, covering a chronologically broad range, too, from 18th-century classicism to the 20th century.
