01Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert20161108

Highlights from three concerts recorded at this year's Lammermuir Festival in East Lothian. The Dutch violinist Lisa Fershtman teams up with Roman Rabinovich, winner of the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Master Competition in 2008, and today's broadcast features two works from that concert. The short and quixotic violin sonata in G minor was Debussy's final work and yet is full of joy and colour. Beethoven's Violin Sonata No 10 in G includes a set of variations for the fourth movement to play to the strengths of the violinist Pierre Rode, who premiered the work. In complete contrast, Andreas Borregaard performs the sparse and atmospheric Air by the Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen.

Beethoven Violin Sonata No.10 in G, Op 96

Resident artists at this year's Lammermuir Festival, Lisa Fershtman (violin) with Roman Rabinovich (piano), Andreas Borregaard (accordion) and the Navarra Quartet, perform highlights from their concerts around the villages of East Lothian. Bartok's first Rhapsody integrates the inflections of Hungarian village music strongly into this fiery and expressive work. Dvorak's love songs transformed into short quartet movements, every one a romantic gem, contrast with the deceptive simplicity of Bach's English Suite performed here on the two-manual classical accordion. The programme is rounded off by Lisa Ferschtman, who performed the slow middle movement from Beethoven's 6th Violin Sonata as an encore to her concert.

Bartok: Rhapsody No.1

Lisa Fershtman, violin

Roman Rabinovich, piano

Dvorak: Cypresses Nos 3, 2, 9 & 12

Navarra Quartet

Bach: English Suite No.2 in A minor, BWV807

Beethoven: Adagio from Violin Sonata No 6 in A, Op.30 No.6
