TYRONE GREIVE, violin
Michael Keller, piano
PHC member and violinist Tyrone Greive, UW-Madison professor emeritus of violin, and pianist Michael Keller, UW-Stevens Point professor emeritus of piano, will present a duo program of stylistically romantically-oriented music at Oakwood Retirement Community-West on Monday, February 19, 7:00 pm.
Included will be two of the most beloved violin-piano sonatas in the standard repertoire: Mozart’s Sonata in E minor, K. 304 from 1778 and, composed 100 years later, Brahms Sonata in G Major, op. 78. Also on the program will be two of the early 20th-century Four Small Concert Pieces, op. 21 by American-violinist composer Cecil Burleigh (1885-1980) and the novel sounding Flight by Polish violinist-composer Paul Kochański (1887-1934).
The performance of Flight, which was dedicated to Charles A. Lindbergh who made the first nonstop transatlantic solo flight in May 1927, will commemorate the 90th anniversary of its composition and publication. Kochański is not only one Poland’s most important violinists, but be also strongly influenced and collaborated in the writing of violin works by Polish composer Karol Szymanowski as well as Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Bartók, de Falla and many others."
