Wigmore Monday Lunchtimes: Augustin Hadelich and Charles Owen
From Wigmore Hall, London, violinist Augustin Hadelich is joined by pianist Charles Owen for a programme of music by Brahms, Ysaye and John Adams.
From Wigmore Hall, London, Italian-born German violinist Augustin Hadelich is joined by British pianist Charles Owen for a programme including Brahms's muscular Sonata No.1, and John Adams's Road Movies - the title of which the composer describes as ‘total whimsy’, probably suggested by the ‘groove’ in the piano part; the pianist is required to play in an increasing ‘swing mode’ throughout. Between them, one of Ysaye's virtuosic solo sonatas - the fourth, dedicated to the composer's contemporary Fritz Kreisler.
Presented by Fiona Talkington.
