This recital brings together two established classics from the 20th century with lesser-known works from the repertoire for violin and piano. Alongside Ravel’s Sonata, a work that reveals the influence of jazz on the French composer, and Prokofiev’s wartime Sonata, Op. 94a, we find compositions by Arvo Pärt, Lili Boulanger, and Grażyna Bacewicz, which, at times meditative, at times lyrical, at times folk-inspired, testify to the richness of this repertoire. These works are performed by violinist Johan Dalene, the Swedish-Norwegian winner of the 2019 Nielsen Competition. Dalene is given the expert support of pianist Christian Ihle Hadland.
