BMI Nightcap Series: Felix Wang, cello, and Mark Wait, piano
This BMI Nightcap Series concert brings together cellist Felix Wang and pianist Mark Wait, to perform two cello sonatas written a year apart, in 1948 and 1949. Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev and American composer Elliott Carter completed their sonatas just months apart, under completely different circumstances and influences. Both produced distinctive works, each owing much to the traditions of the composer’s native country, and these sonatas provide an interesting comparison between these two iconic composers. A pre-concert talk will be presented by the performers.
This performance will be filmed for rebroadcast at a later date on Nashville Public Television’s NPT-2 channel.
