Mark Salman, who has performed two piano concertos with the Auburn Symphony, joins concertmaster Brittany Boulding and principal cello Brian Wharton in works by two musical geniuses and prodigies. Richard Strauss’ Sonata for Violin and Piano, known for its lyrical beauty and technical demands of the musicians was written by the young composer in 1887. This Violin Sonata is suggestive of Mendelssohn’s influence. And while Mendelssohn had written the Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture at 17, and is compared to Mozart in his early ability to compose and perform, this Piano Trio came at age 36, only two years before his death.
