Auckland Libraries: Legacy


Thursday 3 September 12pm to 1pm Free

The Francis Lee Duo present a programme of violin and piano repertoire by two composers born 127 years apart, but both left incredible musical legacies.

Charlotte Francis (violin) and Gemma Lee (piano) perform Sonatas for violin & piano No. 5 in F major ("Spring"), Op. 24 and No. 8 in G major, Op. 30/3 by the great Ludwig van Beethoven who celebrates his 250th birthday this year. The other is Erich Wolfgang Korngold who became one of the most important and influential composers in Hollywood history. His Much Ado About Nothing suite for violin and piano celebrates its 100th year of the publication in 2020.
