RossoRose Duo: End Notes – Late Sonatas for Violin and Piano by Debussy, Beethoven and Shostakovich


Late works can be a personal and telling glimpse into a composer's state of being. With this in mind, RossoRoseDuo presents “End Notes” – an exploration of last violin and piano sonatas by Debussy, Beethoven and Shostakovich. From euphoric to pastoral to deeply resigned, the three chosen sonatas are guaranteed to make you ponder the wonder of life and joy as well as experience the inevitability of loss and suffering.

Program:
Sonata for Violin and Piano in G Minor, L. 140 (1917) – Claude Debussy (1862-1918)
Sonata for Piano and Violin in G Major, No. 10, Op. 96 (1812) – L. van Beethoven (1770 – 1827)
Sonata for Violin and Piano in G Major, Op. 134 (1968) – Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975)
