Daniela Bonfiglioli of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s first violin section performs with pianist Terés Löf, a regular guest at Konserthuset. We hear British-American Rebecca Clarke’s (1886–1979) atmospheric and passionate work for violin and piano: powerful, yet lyrical music with vast string chords and elegant piano accompaniment.
The melodies are beautiful throughout Beethoven’s so-called Spring Sonata. 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. The first few follow in the footsteps of Haydn and Mozart, but in the fourth and fifth sonatas, a change occurs: he takes a brand new approach and uses the expressive registers of the piano and violin to the maximum. The fifth, which we hear at this concert, is the best known.
Menu: Green pea soup with dill and cream. The soup comes with sourdough bread, crisp bread and whipped butter, as well as a beverage, coffee/tea and a small biscuit. All soups are lactose- and gluten-free. Notify us of any special dietary requests when making your booking.
