Mozart – Violin Sonata in A, K526

Elizabeth Wallfisch (Baroque Violin) & David Breitman (Fortepiano)

Elizabeth Wallfisch baroque violin
David Breitman fortepiano

Performing on beautiful early instruments, Elizabeth Wallfisch and David Breitman pair sonatas by Beethoven with sonatas by Mozart and Bach. Coupled with Beethoven’s ever-popular Spring sonata, the fortepiano in Bach’s F minor sonata sheds an entirely new light on the counterpoint between the two players (the fortepiano is not normally associated with Bach, but was not unknown to him), and Mozart’s brilliant A major sonata makes an excellent contrast with Beethoven’s work in the same key.

LCMS Foyer Concert: Anna Thunström & Wezi Elliott - Sunday 24th November, 5.45pm

Campion – Never weather-beaten sail
Bernardi – O dulcissima dilecta mea
Schütz – O Jesu, nomen dulce, SWV 308
Schütz – O misericordissime Jesu, SWV 309

Anna Thunström (soprano)
Wezi Elliott (lute)
Merlin Harrison and Oonagh Lee (recorders)

Anna Thunström graduated from the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden, in January 2012, where she studied classical singing, specialising in the baroque period.
The Royal College of Music student Wezi Elliot used to be a jazz guitarist, who first picked up the lute in 2009. He quickly excelled and became fluent enough to be accepted to RCM in September 2010 and began to study under the professorship of Jakob Lindberg.
As a duo, Anna and Wezi focus on English renaissance and baroque music, which has given them the opportunity to perform songs of Dowland with Dame Emma Kirkby and lutenist Jacob Heringman in the Brighton Early Music Festival in November 2013.
The duo will start this evening’s concert with sacred music from the breaking point between the 16th and 17th century, to then follow a “trail of inspiration”, playing pieces by composers inspired by their musical progenitors. They will move in time from Schütz to Buxtehude on to Bach (to then let Wallfisch and Breitman continue the journey with Mozart and Beethoven).
