No Sonatas Allowed: Susanna & Victor Return

  • Omaha Conservatory of Music 7023 Cass Street Omaha, NE, 68132 United States (map)

Of course we don’t have anything against sonatas! But in their second back-by-popular-demand appearance at Omaha Chamber Music Society, Susanna and Victor uncover some hidden gems of the violin/piano repertoire…like Mozart’s charming Variations on a French song; Schubert’s Fantasy with plenty of bravura and just a touch of Hungarian spice; Prokofiev’s Melodies that range from serene to sassy; and Foss’s Three American Pieces, once called his “gift to America,” bring home the concert with some serious fiddling and square dance tunes.
