Changing Perspectives:  This is Concert 5 in the planned seven-concert series devoted to the piano and violin sonatas of Mozart and Beethoven.  In the series violinist Keith Pascoe (of the RTÉ Vanbrugh String Quartet) and pianist Brian MacNamara present a rarely performed cycle featuring all twenty-seven sonatas - the seventeen sonatas of Mozart and ten for piano and violin by Beethoven.  While the Mozart works demonstrate a unique gift of inspiration  and are among his finest compositions, the Beethoven set are fascinating in terms of how he developed this format for piano and violin.  We believe this is the first time

the performance  of a complete cycle of these works has been attempted  in Ireland, a tour de force for the performers juxtaposing two mammoth bodies of work.
