Momentum Beleggings Aardklop Aubade in collaboration with Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool presents: RAVEL: VIOLIN SONATA & PIANO TRIO
With Zanta Hofmeyr, Manfred Stilz & Megan-Geoffrey Prins.
In 1928 Maurice Ravel famously wrote: “Take Jazz Seriously! It is influencing our work. The Blues in my sonata, par example, is stylized jazz, more French than American in character perhaps, but nevertheless influenced strongly by your so-called ‘popular music.’”
The chamber music of this great French composer defined the age of impressionism. There are no better examples of his creative and sensitive qualities than in his Violin Sonata and Piano Trio, which will be performed for Aardklop Aubade on 7 May by violinist Zanta Hofmeyr, cellist Manfred Stilz and pianist Megan-Geoffrey Prins.
