Ensemble „Musica Graziosa”: Paulina Tkaczyk – traverso flute and harpsichord, Bogumiła Gizbert-Studnicka – harpsichord

Thanks to the programme of the concert the audience will familiarise themselves with unique harpsichord and flute sonatas by ChristliebSiegmund Binder, a Dresden composer and instrumentalist, who has been forgotten for the past two hundred years. His works, full of expression and emotion, are extremely virtuoso. On the one hand they are rooted in the baroque era, on the other they display features of transitional and classical styles. As another titbit, the programme features very rarely performed sonatas for four hands by the „Viennese Classicists”: Mozart and Beethoven. The works were written mainly for teaching purposes, but they represent the highest artistic level. The work deserving special attention is Beethoven's sonata for harpsichord. It contains an altered „Fate motif” known from the opening of Symphony No. 5, but of a joyful nature, as indicated by the sonata's D major key.
