Bridging the Ages: Disc 3 (2007)

<em>Bridging the Ages:</em> Disc 3

This disc captures in microcosm the delicious eclecticism of Music@Menlo's 2007 festival season, beginning with Alfred Schnittke's Moz-Art for Two Violins, a humorous tip of the hat to the great Classical master from Salzburg. Ravel's Violin Sonata, composed half a century earlier, combines the lush sounds of French Impressionism with the seductive strains of American blues and jazz. Nearly half a century earlier still, the young Johannes Brahms set Classical Vienna afire with his Piano Quartet in g minor, whose rollicking Rondo alla Zingarese—the famous Gypsy rondo—continues to bring audiences to their feet.
