Boccherini, Ysaye and Prokofiev from the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival
Georgia Mann presents BBC New Generation Artists performing music by Boccherini, Ysaye and Prokofiev at the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival.
Georgia Mann celebrates the twentieth anniversary of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme with a selection of performances by current members, from the Pittville Pump Room at the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival. To begin, Boccherini’s much loved fourth quintet which includes a fandango, played by Thibaut Garcia and Quatuor Arod. Aleksey Semenenko follows with a performance of a highly challenging solo violin sonata by Eugene Ysaye. To end, Prokofiev’s cello sonata played by Anastasia Kobekina and Lilit Grigoryan. A work which had to be heard by two separate soviet committees, before it was deemed acceptable for public performance in 1950.
