Fauré, Ravel & Brahms | Artists’ Choice

22nd March 2022 - 22nd March 2022

Jonian-Ilias Kadesha – violin Timothy Rideout – viola David Waterman – cello Connie Shih – piano Fauré - Piano Quartet No 1 Ravel - Tzigane for violin and piano Brahms - Piano Quartet No 1 Ravel’s encounter with the Hungarian-Born British violinist Jelly d’Aranyi inspired him to write the rhapsody Tzigane, which she later premiered. Enraptured by her playing, particularly of the performance of various gypsy tunes, Ravel decided to compose a new bravura violin piece which would surpass all former examples of the genre. Ravel himself described the work as ‘a virtuoso piece in the style of a Hungarian rhapsody’ and a ‘virtuoso piece for the violin in the style of Sarasate’. – Jonian-Ilias Kadesha This concert is one of six in the Leeds International Chamber Season 2021/22.
