Soup Concert with Beethoven

Heartfelt and melancholy music for violin and piano.

Around the turn of the last century, several female composers finally received attention in Sweden. One was Valborg Aulin, a composer, pianist and teacher. Among others, she studied under Ludvig Norman, who also helped her study abroad, including in Paris. Her brief, melodic and melancholy Elegie for violin and piano is a reworking of music originally composed for piano. 

Beethoven composed most of his sonatas for violin and piano within a span of five years around the turn of the century to the year 1800. Only the last, which is performed here, Sonata No. 10 in G major, was composed slightly later: 1812. It is ​​atmospheric and pastoral music, perhaps the most heartfelt of his violin sonatas: charged with pain, longing and incredible passion.

We hear Henrik Hansson, member of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s first violin section, together with his son, Nils Hansson Meng, who has been studying at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki since 2017.
