A second celebration of the music of Edward Elgar and Petworth Festival’s founding Artistic Director Robert Walker, both of whom lived and worked at Brinkwells in Fittleworth. The programme includes the world premiere of Walker’s Violin Sonata, which, in the composer’s words he “feels it to be one of his major works”, promising “a highly attractive and immediate work.” The programme also includes three contrasting works, the simplistic beauty of Arvo Pärt’s Frâtres, the elegance of Mozart’s E minor Violin Sonata, and one of the classics of the repertoire, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending. We once again welcome the exciting young violinist Daniel Pioro, who is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the most innovative young violinists of his generation. He is joined by distinguished pianist Kathron Sturrock.
