Elena Abbati (violin) and Giulio Padoin (violoncello)
This duo program aims to bring to light rare gems of the Baroque and Classical periods. Bonporti's Serenata for violin and cello: after a soul-warming A major Largo, virtuoso passages and "dances" alternate in a variation movement until a short and joyful "Chiusa" (final movement).
In Cervetto's duet, the violin and cello harmonize in a delicate and gallant dialogue that stylistically lies between the Baroque and Classical idioms. Cervetto, born in London, was a well-known cellist at the time.
Hoffmann's duo is influenced by the early Viennese school and the French violin school. Born the same year as Beethoven, the German violinist and composer was also appreciated by Mozart for his musical abilities. The lightness and virtuosity are to be enjoyed here first movement.
