The highlight of the evening will be the famed Violin Sonata by Richard Strauss. Written between 1887 and 1888 at the young age of 23, it is noted for its lyrical beauty and its technical demands made on both violinist and pianist. It was during this time, that Strauss fell in love with the soprano whom he would later wed, and his amorous feelings can be heard throughout the piece. The concert program also includes Beethoven Sonata No. 1, Op. 12 in D-major.


Violinist Ben Sayevich has established himself as one of the most distinguished violinists and teachers of his generation. Sayevich also maintains a vigorous schedule as chamber musician. He is a founding member of the Park Trio, established at Park University in 2006, and is violinist of the London-based Rosamunde Piano Trio. With the Rosamunde Trio he has performed widely in Europe, including appearances on BBC Radio London, Irish Public Radio in Cork and the Abbado Festival Bologna. Sayevich is currently professor of violin at Park ICM.

He is joined in concert by his wife, Lolita Lisovskaya-Sayevich, a reputed concert pianist in her own right, earning first prizes at the Chopin International Piano Competition, the Nikolai Rubinstein International Piano Competition and the Iowa International Piano Competition.
