Crespo Series with Diamanda Dramm, Susan Doyle, Crash Ensemble, Bram van Sambeek, Dana Zemtsov @ West Cork Chamber Music Festival 2022
This remarkable recital opens with a short Duo for violin and flute by Irish composer Anna Murray. Bram van Sambeek then gives the Irish premiere of Weinberg’s solo bassoon Sonata. This is a full-scale, four movement work demanding extraordinary virtuosity from the performer. Ligeti’s Solo Viola Sonata is another legendary work played for us by Festival favourite Dana Zemtsov. Tongue in cheek Ligeti describes his influences as Bach’s three solo Sonatas and the Hungarian translation of Alice in Wonderland. We are not meant to understand, just to listen.
