French Violinist Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux is joined by American pianist Evren Ozel for an exemplary program of demanding duos beginning with Franz Schubert's Rondeau brillant in B minor, a rare occurrence of virtuosity from this frequently subdued composer. The remainder of the program features a variety of compositional influences, including jazz in Maurice Ravel's Violin Sonata No. 2, spiky modernism in Grażyna Bacewicz's Violin Sonata No. 2, Greek mythology and impressionism in Karol Szymanowski's Myths, and Hungarian folk music in Béla Bartók's Rhapsody No. 1.
Saluste-Bridoux is the 2021 grand-prize winner of the Young Classical Artists Trust and Concert Guild International Competition and recently appeared at Wigmore Hall and the BBC Proms. Ozel made his debut at age 11 with the Minnesota Orchestra and is the recent recipient of a 2023 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2022 Salon de Virtuosi Career Grant.
