Elgar Violin Sonata in E minor Op.82
Ravel Violin Sonata No.2

One of the things that really struck the panel about Emily and Alexey during their audition in December was how they presented themselves as a duo. The rapport and understanding that develops between two musicians takes time to become established, and too many applicants still present themselves with grab-and-go pianists.

Emily and Alexey are very well-matched and both successful prizewinners in their own right. Their programme combines the dignified and poignant Elgar, and the wonderful Ravel Sonata with its transparent, crystalline textures, its famous blues movement and exciting Perpetuum Mobile finale.
