Axiom Quartet presents Chausson and Prokofiev
The Axiom Quartet will be joined by the international violin soloist Simon Gollo and his equally accomplished pianist John Novacek to present Chausson and Prokofiev. Chausson’s Concert for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet is an elegant example of romanticism whose virtuosic solo violin and piano lines are complemented by Axiom.
In stark contrast with Chuasson’s French style is the violently lyrical Quartet No. 2 by Sergei Prokofiev. This quartet shows off the composer’s sparkling, energetic string writing, while also incorporating folk melodies and moments of deep reflection.
