Clara Rodriguez - Autumn Concert Series - Concert 2


We will be treated to two of the major and most striking pieces in piano literature. One of these pieces is Chopin's Funeral March Sonata No.2, Op.35 in B-flat minor. This work, which Chopin began in 1837 and completed during his first year spent at the house of George Sand in Nohant, France, in 1839, was published in 1840. In this work, Chopin aimed to create something quite different: a new kind of sonata, albeit based on the old form. Essentially, he used the sonata genre as a framework within which the achievements of his earlier music—such as the Études, Preludes, Nocturnes, and even his dance pieces—could be drawn together in a synthesis. The range of emotions in this work is vast, encompassing eeriness, relentlessness, and a sense of imploring, desperation, and compassion.

The second half of the concert will be devoted to another monumental composition, "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Mussorgsky.

For the opening of the programme there will be two pieces by Teresa Carreño. This concert promises a journey through a rich tapestry of emotions and styles, showcasing the brilliance of both Chopin's and Mussorgsky's masterpieces, as well as the vibrant compositions of Carreño.
