In 1757 a medal was struck to commemorate Hungary’s defeat by Frederick the Great of Prussia – a medal which became a token for a ‘foundling’ named Priscilla the following year. Inspired by her story, enjoy a concert of cello music by Brahms and Popper, along with Alfred Schnittke’s introspective Second Cello Sonata. Cellist Carola Krebs and pianist Salih Can Gevrek perform.

Programme:

Alfred Schnittke – Sonata no.2 for cello and piano

Johannes Brahms – Sonata in F major for cello and piano, op.99

David Popper – Hungarian Rhapsody
