Lunchtime Concert: Kyoko Takashima

Bach’s “Partita 2 BWV826” moves from a heavy organ-like atmosphere to a lighter, active and playful experience, like a rollercoaster.

Schubert composed “Sonate 18 Fantasie D894” in 1826 at the pinnacle of his career. According to composer, pianist and music critic Schumann this sonata is a perfect masterpiece full of joy and happiness. The first movement includes two themes, starting with a slow, beautiful melody full of hope and longing, followed by an elegant Sicilian melody. The second movement is one of opposites that will surprise you. From calm and gentle to wild and forceful. The finale is a kaleidoscope of light, fun and thrilling music, full of love.

The Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos bridges Bach and Schubert’s music with parts of “A Prole do Bebê l”.
No. l “Branquinha” is about a white ceramic doll.
No.2 “Moreninha” is about a paper mache doll.
No.3 “Caboclinha” is about a clay doll, leisurely dancing ,keeping to the same smooth rhythm, fading out slowly.
