The Faculty Artist Series at the Yale School of Music presents a recital by violinist Kyung Yu on Saturday, March 5 at 7:30 pm. Pianist Melissa Rose will join Yu for the evening to perform music by Mozart, Brahms, and Ravel.
The concert will open with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s Sonata in G major, K. 301/293a, followed by Johannes Brahms‘ Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108. Written for the famous violinist Joseph Joachim, Brahms’ dramatic sonata is written in four movements, an expansion of the traditional three-movement sonata form.
Closing the program are two works written by Maurice Ravel in the 1920s. The Violin Sonata No. 2 shows Ravel’s love of American jazz and blues; the virtuosic Tzigane, Rhapsodie de concert pour violon et piano has a Gypsy-influenced flair. MORE
