Faculty Concert Series: A Romantic Soirée

February 29, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ann Elliott-Goldschmid, violin
With guest Stephen Runge, piano

This recital of romances and sonatas explores the close personal and artistic relationships between Robert Schumann, his wife Clara Schumann, and their protégé Johannes Brahms. Canadian composer, Jean Coulthard’s Duo Sonata, written 100 years after the Schumanns’ works, is similarly inspired by a partnership of love and music.

Violinist Ann Elliott-Goldschmid is a founding member of the renowned Lafayette String Quartet. Artists-in-residence at UVic, they’ve performed all over North America and Europe for over 30 years. A dedicated teacher as well as performer, Elliott’s students grace major orchestras, string quartets and graduate schools.

Praised for his sensitivity and versatility, pianist Stephen Runge (BMus ’01) has been heard from Victoria to Halifax as a soloist and collaborative artist.
