Travel through time: from Robert Schumann to John Williams.
Ronald Van Spaendonck, regular Théâtre de la Ville guest, proposes, together with Johan Schmidt, a colorful program opening with Schumann’s “Three Romances” op. 94. These elegant pieces have been originally written for piano and oboe and have been offered to the composer’s wife Clara on December 1849. We will then assist to a radical transition with three Anglo-Saxon XX century pieces: Bernstein’s Sonata, both influenced by Hindemith and Copland, and already incorporating some jazz elements; Horovitz’s Sonatina, with a more clearly assumed reference to this musical style; Viktor’s Tale klezmer theme composed by Williams for the film “The Terminal”.
