This program is a mirror of four musical universes, which are as contrasted as interconnected with each other. Enlightening and transgressive, music full of passions, irony, madness, humor, heart- breaking pain, the controversy of letting go, and the purity of love in different states and forms. Bernstein and Poulenc, invited by Benny Goodman’s artistry to create two delighful chamber works – for one was his penultimate,, for the other his first. Weinberg and Prokofiev achieving at the same time the powerful grandeur of their expression and virtuosity, through two of their most intimate and fragile masterpieces. It has been a super exciting adventure to travel all the way this music has taken us through, and we feel this program has an authentic message which connects us to our recent roots and encourages us to go forward full of love, passion and enthusiasm.

Boundless: that’s how one might describe these sonatas by Prokofiev, Weinberg, Bernstein and Poulenc. All of them, except the one by Poulenc, were composed during the Second World War, a fact that is worth noting, given their great virtuosity, each one exploring in a different way the boundaries of the genre. While Weinberg draws on klezmer, the music of his childhood, and Bernstein on jazz, Prokofiev, like Poulenc, chooses a classical language, treated with great freedom. Prokofiev’s famous Flute Sonata in D Major, which appealed so immediately to the violinist David Oistrakh, is presented here in a new transcription for clarinet. Pablo Barragán and Sophie Pacini form a duo that is dynamic and refined; they are perfectly at home in this repertoire!
