This event will last approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Experience all of the Six Solo Sonatas for Violin (1923) by Eugène Ysaÿe performed by graduate and undergraduate students as part of a total-immersion, semester learning project. The students will share their direct lineage to the Belgian master, explain how he entirely revolutionized the craft and the art, even how the repertoire links to some of the most prominent musicians of the Twentieth Century; then play, tag-team style, this daring magnum opus—the most challenging in the genre since J.S. Bach’s model 200 years earlier.
