Variations on a Schubert Theme by Edison Denisov; Pohádka (Fairy Tale) by Leos Janácek; Sonata No. 3 in A major, Op. 69 by Ludwig van Beethoven; Pampeanas No. 2 by Alberto Ginasteramartha & monica performs an international, wide-ranging program of fantastic music for ‘cello and piano. The pair continues an ongoing exploration into the connections between history, literature and music–from a Russian iconoclastic “re-composing” of a beloved Schubert Impromptu, glorious Beethoven, Pohádka (inspired by romantic poet Vasily Zhukovsky’s The Tale of Tsar Berendei), to the plains of Argentina.
