Alda Dizdari violin, Tom Blach piano. Date and time: 3 April 2012, 7:45pm. Venue: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX.
After her acclaimed debut at the Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Abanian born Alda Dizdari alongside Tom Blach brings an equally concentrated and passionate performance of some of the last century’s most interesting pieces for the violin and piano.
This concert explores some of the most important works written for the violin at the beginning of the 20th century.
Music reflected the changing world and the historical background in which artistic movements such as Impressionism in France and Expressionism in Germany were born. In music, these movements were illustrated in musical languages in the works of Debussy, Schoenberg, Ravel and Webern.
