Goulding + Roman: Duo

  • Town Hall Seattle

Violinist Caroline Goulding makes her long-awaited Seattle debut, joining cellist and Town Music artistic director Joshua Roman for an evening of dynamic duets. If you are expecting something small and dainty from this slim chamber music configuration, think again—the works on this program showcase the full power of these two world-class soloists. Halvorsen’s Passacaglia converts old harpsichord music by Handel into an epic display of Romantic virtuosity, while Kodály’s Duo channels the rustic energy of Hungarian folk music. In Ravel’s Sonata, a bewitching tribute to Debussy, the violin and cello produce a staggering array of colors and textures. You will need to see this performance with your own eyes to believe that you are hearing just two parts intertwined.
