Soulful intensity

With great seriousness and joy in playing, a soulful intensity, which always has its basis in a great stylistic confidence, Joshua Bell places himself entirely at the service of the music – and thus makes every concert an event. The exceptional American violinist will perform his chamber music evening together with Shai Wosner, who studied in Tel Aviv with Emanuel Krasovsky and at New York's Juilliard School with Emanuel Ax.

Franz Schubert's Sonata in A major, D 574, which is often referred to as a »duo,« opens the recital and enchants with its large-scale architecture in which folksong-like themes and a spacious harmonic landscape unfold most beautifully. Schubert may have learned how to involve the two instruments in a dialogue that is as intense as it is complex from Beethoven, whose Sonata in C minor, op. 30/2, from 1802, Joshua Bell and Shai Wosner follow with a composition whose pathetically revolutionary tone and unconventional treatment of sonata form show Beethoven at the height of his mastery.

The second half of the program leads into the early 20th century with Maurice Ravel's Sonata in G Major. The composition subtly sublimates the fascination with American jazz and blues through the elegance and sophistication inherent in Ravel's composing.
