Fringe: Poulenc and Faure Violin Sonatas, Richard Montgomery and Anna Michels, at 11.30am

13th August 2021 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join Richard Montgomery and Anna Michels for a programme of two colourful and contrasting French works for violin and piano. Poulenc’s Violin Sonata, a rarely performed but dazzlingly inventive piece composed during the second world war, provides an explosive opening to the concert before the scene shifts to a 19th-century soirée for the elegant ardour of Faure’s Violin Sonata No 1. Anna and Richard will be your guides on this musical journey, giving spoken introductions to each piece that explain their historical and expressive contexts. All ages welcome! Tickets: £10
