Brahms Meets South America - Thursday, February 10, 2011

The Department of Music presents Airi Yoshioka, violin and Rachel Franklin, piano, in a recital featuring:

Sonata in C minor, op. 45 by Edvard Grieg
Sonata No. 1 in G Major, op. 78 by Johannes Brahms
Sonata No. 2 by Paul Desenne and
selected movements Five Little Milonguitas by Pablo Ortiz

8pm, Fine Arts Recital Hall. $7 general admission, $3 seniors, free for students, free with a UMBC ID.

In addition to the Brahms and the Grieg, the concert will features a couple of works by South American composers Paul Desenne (Venezuela) and Pablo Ortiz (Argentina). The Sonata by Desenne frames the Latin dance rhythms in Baroque dance forms such as Bourre, Allemande and Corrente and Five Little Milonguitas is reminiscent of Milongas, a precursor to tangos.
