The Power of Live Music – Be There!


Program 2 - Spring and Fire!

Hear it May 2018

Sunday, May 20, 3:00 PM – Congregational Church of Topsfield


Program Details:

This recital features Beethoven’s beloved Spring Sonata, an open-hearted greeting to the new season!

Similarly optimistic and joyful, Schnittke’s Suite in the Old Style is a wonderful introduction to the late Russian composer. Schnittke was in love with the Baroque Period – this sonata is actually based on film music written by Schnittke in the baroque style.

Next, we turn to virtuosity and fire with the famous Zigeunerweisen by Sarasate. Beloved and admired by students and professionals alike, Sarasate’s lyrical, exciting, and romantic music showcases the diva-esque side of the violin!

Schnittke’s Rondo introduces a new side of the composer. Still highly approachable, this pieces shows flashes of the composer’s ironic side.

An astonishingly difficult work, the Ysaye’s Solo Sonata No 2 is sure to impress. Huge chords and lightning fast scales are typical of Ysaye, but this sonata also includes his more intimate, simple musical style.

As encores Piazzolla’s Oblivion and Libertango bring the experience to a fiery and fun conclusion!

Violinist Joshua Peckins and pianist Eliko Akahori perform these masterpieces live, in intimate recital venues throughout greater Boston. Program may be changed without notice. For other dates/venues, please visit: https://joshuapeckins.com/projects/recitals/
