At the Feet of the Master: Eugène Ysaÿe
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. Students will share the story of their direct lineage to the Belgian master and explain how he entirely revolutionized the craft and the art. Then they will play, tag-team style, this daring magnum opus—the most challenging in the genre since J.S. Bach’s model 200 years earlier.
