Program

The exceptionally young American violinist Chad Hoopes is one of the new stars of classical ‎music. Winner of the top prize in the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, ‎Hoopes plays the 1991 Samuel Zygmuntowicz violin that once belonged to the legendary ‎Isaac Stern. At L’Auditori we will be able to enjoy, for the first time in Barcelona, his chamber ‎musician side with a repertoire of a Romantic and Impressionist nature. With the ‎‎Sonata in G minor, L. 140, the last work by Claude Debussy, we will be able to ‎appreciate how in his final years the composer moved away from the Impressionist style he ‎had championed, as well as enjoy the fusion of classical elements with gypsy violin ‎techniques. TheSonata No. 2 in G major, M. 77, is an exciting mixture of styles, ‎even including some blues, where Maurice Ravel exploits the contrast in the timbre of the ‎two instruments. With the Sonata No. 1 in D minor, Op. 75, Camille Saint-Saëns ‎inspired one of the most delightful passages in Swann’s Way, the celebrated ‎work by Marcel Proust, and set a perpetual technical challenge for all violinists. Finally, the ‎‎Sonata No. 3 in D minor by Eugène Ysaÿe is a solo violin piece that, in one single ‎movement, brings together the atmosphere of Bach’s sonatas and the virtuosity of ‎Paganini’s Caprices.‎
