On Saturday, August 1, the young pianist Joyce Yang, called the greatest of her generation, will perform with violinist Augustin Hadelich in the fourth concert of the 39th annual Salida Aspen Concerts series.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. with a pre-concert interview with the artists at 6:45 p.m. at Salida High School auditorium, 36 Jones Avenue.
The duo will play a short work, “Suite after themes, fragments, and pieces by Pergolesi” by Igor Stravinsky.
Ms. Yang then will play “Estampes” by French composer Claude Debussy, a work in three movements.
Mr. Hadelich will solo in a one-movement work “Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin in D minor, op. 27, no. 3, ‘Ballade,’” by Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, who performed and composed in the early 20th Century.
After intermission the program continues with “Three Pieces for Violin and Piano, op. 14e,” by contemporary Hungarian composer György Kurtág.
The finale will be the popular, well-known work “Violin Sonata in A major,” by César Franck, who composed in Paris in the 19th Century.
