Mona Verhas violin – Paul Heyman cello

Programme

Sonatine for violin and cello, H 80 Arthur Honegger
Sonata for violin and cello Maurice Ravel
Duo for violin and cello, op. 7 Zoltán Kodály


Young Mona Verhas (° 1997) is one of the country’s most promising talents at present. She has picked up an impressive array of awards in recent years and has taken master classes with world-renowned violinists. Along with the equally talented cellist Paul Heyman, she presents a colourful programme of 20th-century compositions. They combine Ravel’s masterful  Sonata for violin and cello, dedicated to Debussy, with less well-known duets by the Swiss Arthur Honegger, member of the famous Les Six and Hungarian Zoltán Kodály, a fervent defender of the national folk music .
