Katherine Hunka & Sophia Rahman - Spotlight Chamber Music Series III
The third concert in the Spotlight Chamber Music Series 2022 sees duo partners Katherine Hunka and Sophia Rahman present a largely Romantic programme. Works by Germanic composers Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann and Robert Schumann are complemented by a late nineteenth-century soaring and lyrical Romance by American composer Amy Beach, and a short movement, A Virtue, from Cork native Sam Perkin’s 9 Snapshots for Violin and Piano. This work was commissioned in 2012 by Ruxandra Petcu-Colan and Gabriela Mayer with funds from Cork City Council Arts Office. Sam writes that “each snapshot in this suite of intimate miniatures for Violin and Piano captures a cherished moment of friendship spent with friend and violinist Eoin Ducrot, student of Ruxandra Petcu-Colan”.
