Lisa Stewart & Stefan Cassomenos
Sunday 8 January at 11am
Church of St John the Evangelist
King St, Flinders
Two of Australia’s finest chamber musicians – violinist Lisa Stewart and pianist Stefan Cassomenos – unite for the first time in a festival-exclusive collaboration.
Their sublime program features three of the finest works of early 20th century France: Ravel’s Violin Sonata No.2 in G Major, boldly infused with jazz and blues, Debussy’s Violin Sonata in G minor, the last major composition of his life, and Messiaen’s Theme and Variations, written as a wedding present to his wife and described by him as “one of my best”.
