Violinist Kenneth Renshaw and pianist Elizabeth Dorman present a program of richly colorful works from the violin and piano repertoire. The program begins with an iconic work written at a low point in J. S. Bach’s personal life, after the death of his wife, through which the themes of grief, hope, and catharsis still ring true today. Gabriel Fauré’s first sonata puts the young composer on the map with its imaginative display of colors and beautiful melodies. Lili Boulanger was the first woman to win the prestigious Prix de Rome composition prize during a time when women were still discouraged from becoming professional musicians. She died tragically young at age 24 from several illnesses and a weakened immune system, but left the world with a few meaningful gems, including the Nocturne for violin and piano, written in 1911.
