Koret Recital Series
Gidon Kremer, violin
Daniil Trifonov, piano
January 13, 2015
Violin Sonata No. 33 in E-flat major, K. 481
Sonata No. 5 for Violin and Piano
Kremer has proven to be that rare virtuoso of both canonic and contemporary repertoire. He and Trifonov play a recital of mature Mozart, elaborate Schubert, and Philip Glass's hypnotic sonata from 2008. Kremer ranks Soviet composer Weinberg's little-known but "startlingly impressive" (The Guardian, UK) third violin sonata as one of the masterpieces for the instrument.
