Deanna Badizadegan, viola & Ian Scarfe, piano


Program:

Brahms Hungarian Dances No. 1 and No. 5 for Viola & Piano

Ligeti Sonata for Solo Viola

Britten Lachrymae


As an instrument with a raw and expressive voice, the viola is beautifully suited to capture the emotion and expression that are characteristic of song and dance. The Brahms Hungarian Dances No. 1 and 5 come from a collection of 21 lively dances that Brahms originally composed in 1869 for piano four hands. Ligeti’s Sonata for viola, composed in the early 1990s, opens with a six minute “slow song” played entirely on the viola’s lowest string and unfurls into a collection of five wild and dynamic movements. Benjamin Britten’s Lachrymae, written in 1950 for renowned violist William Primrose, is a collection of ten variations on a folk song theme by late Renaissance English composer John Dowland. Together, these works represent a range of musical forms, styles, and emotions, with the great unifying factor that they are all, at their core, variants of song or dance.
