Duo FAE Poised for Flight

Duo FAE Duo FAE performed to an ample crowd on Sunday, March 22, thanks to some wonderful publicity and cooperative weather.  Violinist Charlene Kluegel and pianist Katherine Petersen offered three significant works considered masterpieces of the violin-piano repertory:  Beethoven “Spring” Sonata, F Major, op. 24, Charles Ives Sonata No. 2, and Gabriel Fauré Sonata No. 1 in A Major, op. 13.  All are rich, dense, complex works demanding tremendous mental focus and technical mastery.  That the artists rose to the particular challenges and were not ruffled by the inherent difficulties of each is validation of their virtuosity and artistic maturity.  It was a heavenly program and these gorgeous young women both played and looked like angels!  They are establishing strong professional credentials already, as they complete their Doctoral of Musical Arts degrees at Indiana and McGill Universities, and are poised to burst onto the classical music scene.  We will follow them with great interest and enthusiasm.
