Serenade of the Strings: Masterpieces by Fürstenthal and Poulenc” | Concert series “Echo of the Unheard” | November 7, 2024 

An evening dedicated to the sonatas for cello and piano by Robert Fürstenthal and Francis Poulenc – two masters of the 20th century who have had a lasting impact on the musical landscape. Poulenc’s Cello Sonata from 1948 impresses with its dynamic contrasts and profound lyricism, combining classical elegance with contemporary sensitivity. At the same time, Fürstenthal’s sonatas, written during his exile, bear witness to a deep nostalgia and emotion. They mark his return to musical creation after a long period of silence and convey feelings of hope and pain with great intensity.
