Wednesday 19 June: Gintaute Gataveckaite (piano)
Gintaute Gataveckaite will take us on a pianistic sonata odyssey. Beginning with Haydn’s largest work for solo piano, a daring masterpiece of orchestral grandeur, then travel back to the Baroque era with two charming Scarlatti sonatas, each a sublime miniature beautifully woven together. The performance will end with a contemporary sonata by Australian Carl Vine, a complex and challenging explosion of intense rhythmic drive, layers of resonance and unusual flowing harmonies. 

Joseph Haydn—Piano Sonata in E-flat Major, Hob. XVI/52 
Domenico Scarlatti—Piano Sonata in B minor, K.27
Domenico Scarlatti—Piano Sonata in B minor, K.87
Carl Vine—Piano Sonata No.1
