Chloe Hanslip (violin) and Florian Mitrea (piano) perform Dvorak's Sonatina, Op 100, and Prokofiev's Violin Sonata No 2. Plus Steven Osborne (piano) in Debussy's Images.

Nicola Heywood Thomas continues coverage of highlights of the Dartington and Tetbury Festivals 2016, featuring recitals by Chloë Hanslip and Steven Osborne.

An all-Dartington Festival programme today, as another of Debussy's works for solo piano - his rarely-heard D'Un Cahier d'Esquisses is paired with another of Steven Osborne's own, highly-evocative improvisations. This pair of piano works bisects two very different, highly-Romantic violin sonatas. Dvorak's charming Op 100 Sonatina was the last chamber work written on his famous journey to the USA - and features melodies inspired by his encounters with traditional American music. By contrast, Prokofiev's Op 94 sonata was originally written for flute, but rearranged for violin whilst the composer was evacuated to the Ural Mountains at the height of World War Two.
