Soup Concert with violin and piano

Music by Amy Beach and Johannes Brahms.

American Amy Beach (1867–1944) was ground-breaking in her home country. For example, she was the first female American composer to write large orchestral works. She was also a successful pianist and performed concerts in the US and Europe. We hear two works by Amy Beach here. In Three Pieces, she has the violin demonstrate different playing techniques in each piece. Valse Caprice for piano is an exuberantly playful delight in triple time – and one of the first pieces she played publicly.

When Clara Schumann heard the scherzo in her friend Johannes Brahms’ four-movement Sonata No. 3 for violin and piano, she thought it sounded like a young woman with her beloved. The otherwise rather dramatic sonata, with darkly expressive outer movements, takes the listener to Brahms’ youth. This sonata for violin and piano was Brahms’ final work in the genre, and was composed primarily during the highly creative summer of 1886.

We hear Amus Kerstin Andersson, alternate section leader and well-known profile in the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s second violin section, as well as pianist Bengt-Åke Lundin. Lundin’s debut concert with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra was in 1989.
