Péter Frankl (piano) and István Várdai (cello) in Concert

  1. Mendelssohn: Sonata No. 1 in B flat major for Cello and Piano, Op. 45
  2. Schubert: Sonata in A minor for Cello and Piano, “Arpeggione,” D 821

  3. Schumann: Five Pieces in Folk Style, Op. 102
  4. Dohnányi: Sonata in B flat minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 8

This is a rendezvous of generations: István Várdai was born exactly fifty years later than Péter Frankl. The two great musicians first met in the spring of 2015, when they played all of Beethoven’s cello-piano sonatas. “It was a fantastic experience to travel Beethoven’s entire way in a single night. Despite the intervening fifty years, the harmony was complete between us. We obviously felt the music the same way,” said the pianist. At the Spring Festival, the two musicians provide a lavish overview of the 19th century cello-piano literature, from 1824 to 1899.
