Violinist Hyeyoon Park and pianist Benjamin Grosvenor conclude their European recital tour with performances in the Wiener Konzerthaus (Wednesday 6th June) and Konzerthaus Dortmund (Friday 8th June). The programme features violin sonatas by Beethoven, Ravel and Brahms as well as Bartok’s Rhapsody No. 1, with earlier performances having taken place in Schwäbisch Hall (Germany), Malvern (UK), and Biel (Switzerland).
Of their Schwäbisch Hall concert, the reviewer noted that “The musicians opened the work in a nimble, powerful and danceable manner … The second, faster part became a wild dance after an elegant entrance. This was as skillful as their playful dialogue.” (Haller Tagblatt)
