Eugène Ysaÿe was considered one of the leading violinists of his era. The Belgian composer’s Chant d’hiver conjures up a sparkling, winter setting, followed by the song of the nightingale in Stravinsky’s Le chant du Rossignol. The Russian composer originally wrote this for a ballet based on Hans Christian’s Andersen fairytale The Nightingale. The morning concert ends with Respighi’s festive Pini di Roma, a tribute to the eternal city’s stunning pine trees. All these masterpieces bring the beauty of nature to life in music ... Can you think of a better way to start off your Sunday morning?
