Programme notes

Johann Sebastian Bach

Chorale Prelude
  1. Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g ‘mein

“Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g’mein”, or “Dear Christians, One and All, Rejoice”, is a Lutheran hymn, written in 1523 by Martin Luther. It is one of Luther’s early hymns and considered by some as one of his finest. It was published as one of eight songs in 1524 in the first Lutheran hymnal, the Achtliederbuch.

The Bach-Busoni edition is for solo piano

Ludwig van Beethoven

Piano Sonata Op.27 No 1
  1. Andante – Allegro – Andante
  2. Allegro molto e vivace
  3. Adagio con espressione
  4. Allegro vivace

Piano Sonata No. 13 in E-flat major, Op. 27 No. 1, “Quasi una fantasia”, is a sonata composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1800–1801. Beethoven was about 30 years old when he wrote the sonata. He had already made a name for himself in Vienna as pianist and composer and was beginning to explore alternatives to the classical-era compositional procedures that he had largely adhered to during the 18th century. The most famous works of his “middle period”, often emphasizing heroism, were yet to come.

Pierre-Octave Ferroud

Three pieces for solo flute
  1. Bergère captive
  2. Jade
  3. Toan-Yan, la Fête du Double Cinq

The french composer Ferroud wrote Trois pièces pour flûte seule in 1920-1921.

Maria Theresia von Paradis

Siciliene for flute and piano

Maria Theresia von Paradis (1759 – 1824) was an Austrian musician and composer who lost her sight at an early age, and for whom her close friend Mozart may have written his Piano Concerto No. 18 in B-flat major. She was also in contact with Salieri, Haydn, and Gluck. The most famous composition ascribed to Paradis, the Sicilienne in E-flat major for violin and piano is a musical hoax by a 20th Century violinist Samuel Dushkin. The Sicilienne is based on the Larghetto movement from Carl Maria von Weber’s Violin Sonata in F major, Op. 10, No.1.

Suite de trois morceaux is written for flute and piano. An expressive piece full of spirit with contrasts and intricate writings within the Flute part, which creates a variety of moods within the piece.
