Two first prize winners of the prestigious Montreal Symphony competition, Jacques Després (piano) and Andrew Wan (violin) have united to play all Beethoven's sonatas for violin and piano over three consecutive years for the pleasure of our University of Alberta audiences.
Dr. Després is a UAlberta Music Professor and coordinator of the Keyboard program. Wan is originally from Edmonton and now lives in Montreal where he is the concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra - one of the youngest to hold this position. Both musicians are graduates of the Juilliard School.
For this second annual concert in the series, Després and Wan have selected to perform Numbers 3, 5, and 7.
Beethoven's sonatas feature a great deal of interactivity between the two players. Beethoven is the master of intensive studies in theme and variation, taking a phrase or sound motif and breaking it down, turning it around, and revealing all the structures to make you hear and resolve things in new ways. Piano and violin played in full colour through a kaleidoscope.
