Howlett + Pham: Mendelssohn

9 March @ 19:00 - 20:00

$24 – $44

Hoang Pham and Chris Howlett are performing their postponed concert from 2021 - Mendelssohn Sonata and Song.

The program includes a collection of Chris' favourite cello works.   They begin with the highly charismatic second cello sonata that is bright, bold and playful.  It is a fabulous four movement work that showcases a breadth of this masterful composer's skills.   Following the sonata they move into the paradoxical world of "Songs without Words".  In the 1840's, simply put, there was no song without text.   It is hardly surprising though that Felix, the grandson of Moses Mendelssohn, one of Europe's brightest minds, created and developed this new genre with music in its purest sense.   Hoang and Chris explore the much loved op. 63 selection of this collection.
