Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall 4/ 4
Austrian virtuoso violinist, Benjamin Schmid and the Argentinian pianist, Jose Gallardo bring this series of Radio 3 Lunchtime concerts marking the 150th anniversary of the Ulster Hall to a close. Beethoven's Violin Sonata in E flat Op. 12 No. 3 is dedicated to Antonio Salieri who was tutoring the young Beethoven at the time. Beethoven titled his Op. 12 as Sonatas for keyboard and violin but Beethoven certainly conceived this music as an equal partnership. Prokofiev began composing his First Violin Sonata during the summer of 1938 and completed it several years later in 1946. It is dedicated to the great Russian violinist, David Oistrakh. The mood of the sonata is sombre and Oistrakh performed movements from the work at Prokofiev's funeral in 1953
