L'ARPEGGIATA : Michael Houstoun & Bella Hristova: Beethoven, the piano and violin sonatas
01 Sep to 03 Sep 2017
"Every sound she draws is superb" The Strad
Beethoven’s ten Sonatas for Violin and Piano form a transcendent,
transformative monument of the duo sonata repertoire: they present a
formidable, unique challenge to violinists and pianists.
Bella Hristova, winner of the 2007 Michael Hill International Violin Competition, is known for the power and lyrical beauty of her sound, a violinist perfectly suited to the huge technical and emotional demands of Beethoven’s Sonatas. Michael Houstoun’s recent performances of Beethoven’s complete Piano Sonatas met with huge acclaim for fluency, and appreciation of Beethoven’s wit, as well as the moments of profound desolation.
BEETHOVEN: The Piano & Violin Sonatas
Performing all ten of Beethoven's Sonatas for Piano and Violin, the festival will take the form of three concerts over three days in Christchurch. Hristova and Houstoun’s collaboration in our Beethoven Mini-Festival will be the landmark musical event of 2017 - one not to be missed!
