Works by Halvorsen, Sibelius, Vasks and Piazzolla will feature in their short programme, to be filmed and recorded onsite at one of Europe’s most eminent concert venues.
The concert will be broadcast at 8:30pm (Central European Standard Time) on Thursday 18th February via the Concertgebouw YouTube channel.
Daniel and Maja will chat to presenter Katie Derham about their new CD ‘Pas de Deux’ on the Challenge Records Label, and perform music from the disc live in the studio. The duo will be featured near the beginning of the programme at 5.05pm, and the programme will be available shortly after broadcast via this link.
Pas de Deux brings together a collection of their favourite works which they have performed together over the last two years. Ravel’s ‘Sonata for Violin and Cello, à la memoire de Claude Debussy’ is the only piece on the disc already firmly established in the repertoire for this combination, and the duo has used this work as their “kaleidoscope” for the recording, “a looking glass that takes us both back and forward in time, and both of those simultaneously”.
