Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 1 in D major, Op. 12
Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 5 in F major (Spring), Op. 24
Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 7 in G major, Op. 96

For their programme, Barnabás Kelemen and Péter Nagy selected some of the greatest pieces from the literature of the sonata, Beethoven’s works for violin and piano. In contrast to the piano sonatas, the string quartets or the symphonies, Beethoven did not write violin sonatas throughout his career. However, the ten pieces sufficiently, almost exhaustively, characterize the decade during which the composer’s distinctive style crystallized.
The Kossuth and Liszt Ferenc Prize laureate violinist is a holder of the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary. He has been a professor of the Liszt Academy and a permanent guest professor of Indiana University Bloomington since 2005.
Péter Nagy’s international career was set in motion by his first place at Hungarian Radio’s 1979 piano competition. As a chamber musician, he is now a frequent guest of prestigious festivals in Europe and overseas. He regularly collaborates with Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos, and the two have given concerts in the USA, Spain, Greece, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia and Hungary.

This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Müpa Budapest.
