“Solo Violin Sonatas of Ivan Khandoshkin”
A violinist in the court of Catherine the Great, Ivan Khandoshkin (1747–1804) is believed to have developed his craft under the tutelage of the Italian violinists who dominated the court orchestra. This concert represents a rare opportunity to hear his Three Sonatas for Solo Violin, Op. 3, a haunting set influenced by Russian song, Italian virtuosity, and a cosmopolitan gallant style.
