South Florida Symphony brings you a delightful evening of works for two violins performed by Huifang Chen and Ekaterina Nazarova. This free livestream concert features Mozart’s fascinating Der Spiegel (The Mirror) – a duet in which the violin 2 part is the same music as the violin 1 part, only read upside down! You’ll also enjoy one of his most instantly recognizable melodies, Rondo Alla Turca (from the last movement of his famous Piano Sonata in A Major). Selections from Béla Bartók’s 44 Duos for Two Violins are a set of marvelous musical miniatures that draw on the composer’s love of Eastern European folk music. French Baroque composer Jean-Marie Leclair’s elegant Sonata for Two Violins and Belgian virtuoso Charles Auguste de Bériot’s charming Duo Concertante No. 1 show off two violins in graceful motion together. To round off the evening are two of tango master Piazzolla’s most popular and enduring pieces: the sultry Oblivion, along with Libertango, which marks a change in style for the composer from classical tango to nuevo tango.
