About this concert

In celebration of Edwin Roxburgh’s 75th Birthday (6 October 2012), David Takeno, Eugene Ysaÿe International Chair of the Violin at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, has commissioned a new work from the composer: this will be its world première performance.

Schumann’s late Märchenbilder (Fairy tale pictures) and Hindemith’s first viola Sonata Op. 11 No. 4 are two masterpieces of the viola repertoire. Rachmaninov’s beloved cello sonata concludes the programme, in a version for viola and piano made by the great Russian violist Vadim Borisovsky.
