Rachel Roberts and Tim Horton look forward to their upcoming duo concert for Conway Hall Sunday Concerts on Sunday 24th January.
Live-streamed from Conway Hall, this will be a great opportunity to hear a brilliant duo performing some of the greatest works of the viola and piano repertory.
The stream takes place at 6:30pm on Sunday 24th January, and tickets can be obtained via the Conway Hall website. Free tickets are available to those under 26 thanks to the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust.
Rachel and Tim will perform Rebecca Clarke’s acclaimed Viola Sonata at the end of a programme which also features nineteenth-century works by Schumann, Brahms and Vieuxtemps. Two pillars of the viola and piano repertory are Schumann’s character pieces ‘Märchenbilder’, which open the programme, and Brahms’s Sonata for viola and piano in F minor, op. 120, originally written as a clarinet sonata which Brahms then arranged for viola and piano the following year. Rachel will also perform the Capriccio Hommage à Paganini in C minor by Henri Vieuxtemps, an extraordinary work for solo viola, written by one virtuoso violinist-violist-composer in homage to another, forty years his senior.
Founded in the 1880s, Conway Hall’s Sunday Concerts series is the longest-running of its kind in Europe, and the 2021 series is presented as a series of live online performances via Youtube Live.
