Program

Sergei Prokofiev composed the Sonata No. 2 in D major, Op. 94 for flute and piano, but a year later he transcribed it for violin and piano at the request of his violinist friend David Oistrakh. It is structured in four movements: the first in the form of a sonata, the second a scherzo, the third an andante that presents a violin melody with jazz touches, and a final movement that begins with a festive air but gradually darkens.

In Chaconne, Sofia Gubaidulina creates seven variations from an initial harmonic progression, typical of the baroque folk dance -the chaconne. It recovers the main theme in the final coda. One of Gubaidulina’s early compositions, Chaconne focuses mainly on the piano. In Fid’l, Jordi Cervelló also explores the technique of variation: in this case, he proposes six variations on a popular Jewish theme. Conversely, Profili uman is a collection of nine capricci - later included in the collection of 24 capricci for violin - in which Cervelló portrays various typical human characters, such as the shy, the enamoured, the ironic and the mocked.
