Flutissimo presents

"Masterpieces, Encore!"
with guest pianist, Anna Sleptsova

3pm Sunday 28 July 2024

Callaway Auditorium
University of Western Australia

Celebrate the magnifience of fine classical chamber music! By popular demand, this exciting concert will reprise two works that were performed in our recent series, "Masterpieces of Classical Chamber Music," featuring chamber music for piano in combination with other instruments.

The programme presents works by Bach - father and son - commencing with Johann Sebastian Bach's extraordinary Sonata in B minor, described by Bach's biographer Philipp Spitta as "the finest flute sonata in existence." This is followed by an exquisite trio by Bach's least known musical son, Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (1735-1795).

Mendelssohn's much loved Piano Trio in D minor (op. 49) will be presented in the composer's own version with flute replacing the violin. The pairing of the two masterpieces  by JS Bach and Mendelssohn will highlight Mendelssohn's deep veneration for the great Baroque master, whose music he famously championed.

Artists are Ukrainian virtuoso pianist Anna Sleptsova, with Emily Gunson (flute) and WA Symphony Orchestra's associate principal cello Isaac Davis.
