Lunchtime Concert - of Love and War
Elizabeth Layton violin
Lucinda Collins piano
Grieg Violin Sonata No. 2, Op. 13
Arthur Benjamin Violin Sonata in E minor
One sonata from a honeymoon, and another from the First World War. Grieg's delightful Second Violin sonata was written just after his marriage. Australian composer Arthur Benjamin penned a sonata 1918, the same year he became a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down. The Heads of the Elder Conservatorium's Strings and Keyboard departments join forces for this concert.
