Music Matters: Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy~ His Life Through Three Violin Sonatas

  • LaGrua Center 32 Water Street Stoninton, CT 06378 (map)

with Abigail Karr (violin) and Yi-heng Yang (piano)

No more promising musical genius than the young Felix Mendelssohn ever made it into the history books. Throughout his tragically brief life, he wrote music that has survived the changes in taste and style since then. His three very beautiful violin sonatas, each with its own strikingly individualistic character, encapsulate much of the charm, irresistible verve, and sheer lyricism of this justifiably beloved composer. Join us to share in the rare insights offered by two performers with a special Mendelssohn touch. Though Abigail Karr and Yi-heng Yang will, in this case, be playing modern instruments, they draw on their profound familiarity with mid-19th-century instruments and performance practice.
