Classic music fans: the Conservatoire Frédéric Chopin expects us on Friday May 17, 2019 at 8 p.m. for a violin and viola recital. This is the occasion to discover violinist Yaïr Benaïm and viola-player Françoise Gnéri. And the good deal is that the entrance is free of charge, all you have to do is to book your tickets emailing

Let’s add a little bit of context for laypersons: viola and violin may look the same, but they are actually very different. If they have both been invented in the 1520’s near Milano, their main difference is their size and the sound they make – since the latter is related to the size.

Violin is the smallest of them two, its sound is brighter and more high-pitched. Viola is bigger and makes a deeper and rounder sound. That’s it. Now we can show off and be classic music aficionados.

On the menu of this night, let’s listen to eclectic works from two centuries, going from Bach to Martinù. Duos of course, as well as solos, there’s something for everyone, here’s the detail:

  • Duo for Violin and Viola KV 423 – Mozart
  • Movement for violin – Bach
  • Movement for violin – Ysaÿe
  • Two short movements for viola – Bach
  • Duo No.2, 10, 11 and 6 – Hersant
  • Madrigaux No. 2 and 3 – Martinù
  • Passacaille for Violin and Viola – Haendel-Halvorsen

So, meet on Friday May 17, 2019 for a concert likely to strike a chord!
