Leif Ove Andsnes
Partita for Violin and Piano
Sonata for Violin and Piano in F major Op. 57
Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 1 Sz 75
Christian Tetzlaff and Leif Ove Andsnes have chosen works from the early and the late 20th century to bookend their duo recital: A mere six decades separate the expressionist gestures of Bartók’s 1921 Violin Sonata and Lutosławski’s Partita, written in 1984. Dvořák’s rarely heard Violin Sonata—an intimate companion piece to his famous Violin Concerto—completes the program.
