S. Barber: Sonata in E-Flat Minor, Op. 26
This solo piano recital by Manos Kitsikopoulos is centred on American music. On the occasion of 110 years since the birth of Samuel Barber, one of the most important American composers and winner of many awards, two of his seminal works, the monumental Sonata in E-Flat Minor, Op. 26 and Excursions converse with John Corigliano’s Fantasia on an Ostinato, miniature masterpieces by George Crumb and Chick Corea and well-known tunes by George Gershwin.
A tribute that showcases the diversity of American music, from folk to blues and from jazz to improvisation.
