Homage a M. De Falla . by Bella Kovac for clarinet
Beethoven piano sonata no. 21
Bartok Contrasts for violin, piano and clarinet
Beethoven’s Piano Sonata no. 21 in C major, Op.53, known as the “Waldstein” is one of the most popular and technically demanding of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas. Presented by the outstanding Alexander Waite, with great passion and depth, it marks the transition in Beethoven’s career from early compositions to a great master of his craft.
Homage a M. De Falla utilises the Flamenco harmonies and rhythms of its namesake Manuel De Falla. A bight colourful work Kovac showcases a flamboyant rhapsodic romp through a delightfully Spanish flavoured affair.
Bartok’s Contrasts for Clarinet Violin and Piano is a mesmerising work. A deep exploration of the instruments tonal colourings and rhythms, this 20th century gem is a deeply intriguing exploration of Bartok’s unique style. And his only chamber work to include a wind instrument.
