Robert Hariman, violin
Nancy Hagen, piano
Violinist, Robert Hariman and pianist, Nancy Hagen, will present an exciting music program on Sunday, November 13 at 2:00 pm, at the Oak Brook Public Library Meeting Room. New member, Robert Hariman, is a local resident of Oak Brook, and graduated from the School of Music, Jakarta, Indonesia. He studied under the mentorship of various famous violinists in the U.S. and was a member of the first violin section of the DuPage Symphony for seven years. He has given recitals at various venues in the Chicagoland area.
Nancy Hagen graduated from Indiana University and Northwestern University, majoring in piano and oboe performance. Currently, she is the principal oboist for Park Ridge Civic Orchestra. She performs extensively on the piano and oboe as soloist and accompanist.
The musical duo will present captivating works for violin and piano by famous composers, including Schubert, Mozart and Sarasate. The grand duo sonata in A major for violin and piano by Schubert, represents his major work for violin and piano. In this piece he showed, in addition to his lyricism, the influences by Rosinni and Beethoven.The piece is filled with passages of full energy and charm. The Mozart sonata for violin and piano in B flat major was commissioned in 1784 for violinist Regina Strinasacchi, to be performed by the composer and the violinist herself. During the performance, Mozart sat with a completely blank piece of paper in front of the piano. Emperor Joseph II uncovered this ruse using his opera glasses and confronted the composer, who then used the occasion to enhance his cavalier reputation. This sonata contains many beautiful and glittering passages. The piece “Introduction et Tarantella” by composer and violinist Sarasate is widely performed as an encore violin piece accompanied by piano or orchestra. The piece shows various interesting and technical challenges, like right hand and left hand pizzicati, harmonics and double stops.
The concert is free. For reservations, please call the Oak Brook Public Library Reference Desk / 630-368-7725.
