Peter Scholes conductor
Justine Cormack violin
Sarah Watkins piano
James Tennant cello
Evgeny Lanchtikov bass
- Antonin Dvořák Serenade Op.44
- Gioachino Rossini Duet for Cello and Bass
- Alban Berg Chamber Concerto
This is a concert of spectacular music with compositions from three contrasting composers. The Dvořák Serenade is excitingly virtuostic and full of sublime melancholy. The Rossini Duet crams an opera worth of tunes into a tiny piece as well as showcasing the soloists with string gymnastics. A cello and bass duet is a rare thing and it’s wonderful that Rossini made this charming piece for us to enjoy. The major work in the programme is the mighty Chamber Concerto by Alban Berg. It features two soloists: piano and violin. The work has a clean architecture with each soloist working alone with the orchestra, and together as a duo.
