Mark C. Smith Concert Hall, VBC
Davidson Classical Series
On the program:
Ravel – Le tombeau de Couperin Sonata for Violin and Cello
Beethoven – “Triple” Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano
Chamber music and the full symphony orchestra meet in this evening’s unique program. Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin, a perennial favorite, highlights the colors of a chamber orchestra while paying patriotic tribute to the French musical tradition. His Sonata for violin and cello is a strikingly different work, experimental and virtuosic in character. The imposing Triple Concerto, composed by Beethoven for his patron and student, the Archduke Rudolph, is a marvelous essay for piano trio and orchestra, among Beethoven’s favorites of his own work.
