Our Essential Haydn series continues with another string masterpiece from the composer, complemented by Arvo Pärt’s moving dedication to Russian violinist Oleg Kagan.
In this fascinating work for violin, cello and piano, Pärt expands upon Mozart’s Adagio from his Piano Sonata in F major, heightening the dissonance and complexity of the original to create something altogether more sorrowful.
