Concert Guide

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the concert guide to get all the details.

The writing is anything but juvenile, richly textured and deceptively complex, bursting with enthusiasm and virtuosity.

Maurice Ravel wrote his gripping Sonata for Violin and Cello in 1920, and dedicated it to the memory of his friend and colleague, Claude Debussy. There are moments of glowing textures that recall Debussy, and the incredibly detailed and intricate interplay of the two instruments is trademark Ravel. This enchanting duet is a thrilling musical adventure.

Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla brought the sounds and rhythms of Argentinian tango into the concert hall, creating a new blend of tango, jazz and classical music known as nuevo tango (new tango). These pieces are among his finest and showcase the expressive richness and sophisticated harmonies that are so characteristic of his writing.
