I joined Australian pianist Jennifer Hou for a 6-recital tour in August, 2023. On the program were works by Sibelius, Chopin, Sarasate, Prokofiev, Bacewicz, Westhoff, and Beach.
Jennifer and I had previously worked together on the duo program, Dear Camilla, in 2022, and it was wonderful to perform together again, this time with new repertoire.
Our program centered around Sergei Prokofiev's dark and monumental Violin Sonata No. 1 in F minor. This 4-movement piece was written between 1938-1946, and is among Prokofiev's most consistently brooding and demanding works.
Of our 6 concerts, 2 were filmed! Below are some clips of our last show, which was a shorter, noontime concert at Wesley Music Centre in Canberra. Check back soon for more videos and photos from our other shows!
