Concert: Kristóf Baráti & Roman Rabinovich

  • Location: Linehan Hall at UMBC
  • Address: 1028 Hilltop Road, Catonsville, MD 21250

Together, Baráti and Rabinovich present a program of pieces built on musical friendships:
Brahms composed his Thun sonata after a collaboration with contralto Hermine Spies, weaving
themes from her songs into a luxurious piece for violin and piano. Bartok wrote Rhapsody No. 1
for his friend and virtuoso violinist Joseph Szigeti who gave the premiere performance with
orchestra in 1929. And Beethoven wrote his Sonata No. 9 for friend and violinist George
Bridgetower, who sight-read the sonata for the premiere performance. This program is noted for both its technical difficulty and broad emotional scope.
