Gabriel Fauré Après un rêve
Dmitri Shostakovich Sonata for Viola and Piano, Op.147
Poetically conceived by Park around themes of romance and fantasy, this program moves from dreamy beginnings to a serious and somber conclusion, with Shostakovich’s Viola Sonata, composed right before the composer’s death.
