feat. Bach, Liszt, Dutilleux, R. Strauss & Tallis
This week on Grammofy we're shining a light on some of classical music's most supreme pieces of structural engineering;
works which see traditional forms or genres stretched way beyond their previous limits, and we've chosen a selection which takes you from the Elizabethan era right through to the late 1970s. First up is Johann Sebastian Bach's Sonata No 3 for solo violin, played here by Boris Begelman. Next comes Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor from Paul Lewis, after which we have Quatuor Hermès recording of Dutilleux's Ainsi la nuit string quartet. Richard Strauss's magnificent Alpine Symphony follows, from Bernard Haitink and the London Symphony Orchestra, before we climax on one of the crowning achievements of the English choral tradition, Thomas Tallis's Spem in Alium sung here by The Tallis Scholars. Have fun!
