The Concert Programme
The concert from Leslie Hatfield and Huw Watkins consists of a programme of five works by a range of composers. The concert will kick off with a series of five melodies written by Sergey Prokofiev. Following this, a composition of Huw Watkins’ own devising will be performed. The piece is entitled ‘Spring’ for Violin and Piano. Next come the Three Romances for Violin and Piano by Robert Schumann, followed by the Sonata for Violin and Piano No 2 in G which was written by Maurice Ravel. The concert will close with Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Sonata for Violin and Piano No 5 in F, ‘Spring’.
This concert is different to many classical concerts, as the programme consists of many shorter pieces of music rather than two or three long ones. Violin and piano duets always make for wonderful entertainment, so a whole evening of these is a fantastic opportuntity!
