“The Four Seasons”

Beethoven’s dramatic C-minor violin sonata marks a stylistic change in the composer’s life – when he was coming to grips with his worsening deafness. A wartime tribute to the slain poet Federico Garcia Lorca, Poulenc’s edgy sonata replaced two earlier ones which he destroyed.

Both works overcome their melancholic opening material with triumphant finales.CAB Concertmaster José Miguel Cueto and pianist Nancy Roldán serve up a dynamic program of bravura and tender moments.
