ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

Welcome toIn Concert With CMS.

I'm Paula Zahn, and today we

have two divine sonatas for

you from the Chamber Music

Society of Lincoln Center.

First up is the "Cello Sonata"

of Samuel Barber, completed

when the composer was only 22

years old.

This three movement work is

moody and lyrical, oftentimes

echoing the expressiveness of

an earlier generation of

composers such as Robert

Schumann.

And speaking of Schumann, in

the second half of our program

we feature his own brand of

expressiveness with the

composer's "second Violin

Sonata."

Composed in a burst of

creative energy over the

course of three weeks,

Schumann's sonata is

virtuosic, full of passion,

and an absolute joy to hear.

Enjoy!
