Emily Sun (violin); Sam Armstrong (piano)

Wednesday 27 September, 2017 at 01:10 pm

Beethoven Sonata for Violin and Piano in Eb major No.3 Op.12
Fauré Sonata for Violin and Piano in A major No.1 Op.13
Tchaikovsky Valse-Scherzo Op.34  

I recently heard Emily in the final of the Bromsgrove International Competition (which she won, to add to her prestigious ROSL award). She has a powerful sound and great dynamism, so this programme of two energetic, youthful sonatas should be ideally suited. The piano parts to both are very active and difficult, so Emily is lucky to have a pianist of the calibre of Sam Armstrong to partner her. This will be a vibrant and exuberant way to open the fresh season.
