Nicola Benedetti, violin & Alexei Grynyuk, piano
Few artists combine such formidable artistry with the pure joy of music making as Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti. Join us as she takes on a towering masterpiece of the literature in the Chaconne from Bach's D Minor Partita, before being joined by pianist Alexei Grynyuk in Prokofiev's violin sonata, a beguiling work which shows Prokofiev's affinity for jazz rhythms and harmonies. The program continues with the New York premiere of jazz legend Wynton Marsalis's new piece for solo violin, a tour de force which shows off Ms. Benedetti's verve and brilliant technique. Finally, Mr. Grynyuk again joins Ms. Benedetti for Richard Strauss's violin sonata, a gently lyrical work that culminates in plenty of fireworks for both instruments.
