Pavle Krstic – Intelligence and virtuosity at the service of music
Pavle flew in from Salzburg invited by the Keyboard Trust to play at Steinway Hall in London.
Three sonatas on the programme by Beethoven,Chopin and an early Sonata by Stravinsky that the composer had hoped had been destroyed by the regime when he left his homeland in 1914.
Two great works,one by Beethoven with his ‘quasi una fantasia’companion to the renowned ‘Moonlight’Sonata and Chopin’s B flat minor ‘Funeral March’Sonata.
Strange no Mozart,considering that Pavle for the past ten years has been resident in Salzburg where he has been in the class of Pavel Gililov.
Only a Sonata that the composer Stravinsky was horrified to see had survived the revolution!
