Sonata Night 37: Mozart, Saint-Saëns, & Brahms
Under the direction of NEC faculty pianist Pei-Shan Lee, Sonata Night is an evening of piano-instrumental masterworks featuring collaborative pianists in partnership with their instrumental colleagues.
Sonata, a musical term of several meanings, is used here to signify a duo form of equal partnership. Sonata Night programming spans a wide range of musical styles and features the world's greatest duo works from the Baroque through the 20th century, including compositional forms such as multi-movement suites and character pieces.
Sonata Night performers are coached jointly by faculty of the collaborative piano and instrumental departments. Highlights of the 2021-22 season include an all-Stravinsky concert and Mozart’s complete sonatas for piano four-hands.
This performance is open to in-person audiences, and can also be viewed below via livestream.
