Event Details

A recital from two of Australia’s most capable chamber musicians

The second concert of Kristian Chong and Friends in 2016 sees the wonderful Adelaide Symphony Concertmaster, Natsuko Yoshimoto, and pianist Kristian Chong perform some of the most rapturous works for violin and piano.

The program opens with Brahms’ superbly lyrical, sometimes shy but always dignified Sonata for Violin and Piano No.2, followed by Australian composer Arthur Benjamin’s short but delightful Sonatine for Violin and Piano. The recital concludes with what is arguably the most glorious and triumphant sonata for violin and piano, Strauss’s Op.18, with its musical language overflowing with opulence, soaring melodies and abundant highlights.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Kristian Chong and Friends.
