Maxim Vengerov by Benjamin Ealovega and Roustem Saïtkoulov by Eric Legouhy
Maxim Vengerov, “one of the most brilliant violinists you’ll ever hear” (The Washington Post), returns to Carnegie Hall with a program that showcases his tremendous virtuosity and versatility. He performs three magnificent sonatas: Brahms’s powerful Third, Enescu's passionately expressive Second, and Ravel’s lyrical final chamber work with its famous central movement. Vengerov also displays his dazzling technical prowess in showpieces by Paganini and Ernst.

Ravel’s Violin Sonata  

Ravel embraced a more austere style in his final chamber work, distancing himself from the opulent Romanticism of his earlier music. The Violin Sonata’s lyrical opening pages float on light and airy textures. The violin punctuates its sultry song with biting pizzicato, and the piano flirts with honky-tonk in its central “Blues.” The finale is a showpiece in which the violin fires off rapid-fire notes and the piano responds with its own flair.
