Great Mountains Festival - Schubert and Ravel
Great Mountains Festival from Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Music by Schubert and Ravel. With Sarah Walker.
Sarah Walker presents highlights from the 2018 Great Mountains Festival in Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
In the final programme this week, just two works. Firstly, Schubert's E flat major trio, premiered in the composer's last year at a friend's engagement party, and including a mysterious and subdued second movement that Stanley Kubrick used to great effect in his film 'Barry Lyndon' of 1975 - which is the same year that Ravel's Violin Sonata was published. The sonata dates back to the last years of the nineteenth century but, whilst complete, Ravel had later put the work to one side to concentrate on a more 'modern' style, and the Sonata shares a sound-world with his ever-popular String Quartet of 1903.
