L Janáček Violin Sonata

V Williams The Lark Ascending

E Grieg Violin Sonata No. 2 in G major

Eleanor Corr is a British-Irish violinist and winner of the 2020 Royal Over-Seas League Gold Medal.  She has given critically acclaimed recitals in venues such as Buckingham Palace, Wigmore Hall and at Brighton Early Music Festival as well as for Radio 3.  Pianist Emil Duncumb has performed across Europe, both as a soloist and chamber musician.

Starting the programme with Janáček’s Sonata, which is full of foreboding, this is followed with Vaughan Williams’ perennial favourite The Lark Ascending, which although written in the same year as the Janáček, is a complete contrast, celebrating the idyllic English countryside.  They finish the programme with the sublime Violin Sonata No. 2 by Grieg.
