BYU violin-piano duo continues Beethoven sonata series Feb. 16

Monte Belknap, violin, and Barbara Allen, piano, will perform the second of three recitals in their Beethoven sonata series on Friday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall at Brigham Young University.

Admission is free. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to get a seat, as the first recital in January turned away nearly 100 people.

This recital will begin with the Sonata No. 1, which is very classical in structure, according to Belknap. The Sonata No. 10 will come next, and, in contrast with the first sonata, is romantic, with elongations of formal design.

“Sonata No. 10 is our favorite and falls directly in the middle of the three concerts,” said Belknap.

The last selection will be the Sonata No. 7, which is serious in its character and very technically difficult for the players.

Monte Belknap is in his fourth year teaching violin at BYU. He is the former concertmaster of the Illinois Symphony and has performed recitals all over the world. Barbara Allen studied with Soulima Stravinsky, son of the famed composer. She has performed in Germany, the former USSR and on the Temple Square Concert Series.

For more information, contact Monte Belknap at (801) 422-3328 or by e-mail at mbelknap@byu.edu.
