Beethoven’s beloved ‘Moonlight’ Sonata takes the spotlight in this concert, performed by Ensemble 360’s Tim Horton, with echoes of the same piece in Shostakovich’s Viola Sonata – the final notes ever written by the Russian master.
Performances from guest stars Tine Thing Helseth and Kathryn Stott are also woven into the evening, through a selection of Puccini’s songs transformed for trumpet and piano, and Scarlatti’s virtuosic keyboard sonatas brilliantly arranged for wind quintet.
Programme: D SCARLATTI (arr. LIPATTI) Six Sonatas (20’) PUCCINI Storiella d’amore; Sole e amore; E l’uccellino; Canto d’anime; Avanti Urania! (11’) BEETHOVEN ‘Moonlight’ Sonata (15’) SHOSTAKOVICH Sonata for viola and piano (35’)
