Longtime duo of Kyung Yu and Elizabeth Parisot performs Nov. 2

The Yale School of Music presents violinist Kyung Yu and pianist Elizabeth Parisot in a Faculty Artist Recital on Wednesday, November 2, 2011. Yu and Parisot, a longtime duo who have performed together in the United States, Italy, and Korea, will play music from Mozart to Ravel. The recital will take place at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall.

Yu and Parisot, who are both alumnae of the School of Music and current members of its faculty, will open the concert will open with Mozart’s Sonata for Violin and Piano in B-flat major, K. 378. They will then play works written in the early twentieth century that often sound like the music of earlier times.

Ravel’s Violin Sonata in G Major (1923–27) ranges from a classically-structured opening to a bluesy second movement to a virtuosic finale. Respighi, best known for his colorful orchestral works, wrote his Violin Sonata in B minor (1917) in the Romantic tradition. “Perhaps it was the fact that he was himself an excellent violinist and pianist,” writes Charlie Niven, “that allowed Respighi to write such a powerful work.”

The program will conclude with music of Fritz Kreisler, one of the foremost violin virtuosos of his day: the Praeludium and Allegro; Caprice Viennois; and Danse Espagnole, from Manuel de Falla’s La Vida Breve. MORE
