Foyle–Stsura Duo

Thu 11 Feb 2016

Michael Foyle violin
Maksim Stsura piano

Schubert Violin Sonata in A major D574, ‘Grand Duo’
Prokofiev Violin Sonata No. 2 in D major Op. 94
Brahms Scherzo in C minor from the F-A-E Sonata

The ‘Grand Duo’ finds Schubert in cheerful, airy mood. Likewise, Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2 is elegant and carefree, despite its wartime genesis. Finally, Brahms’s contribution to a sonata written with Schumann and his pupil Albert Dietrich fizzes with youthful zest.
