Patricia Kopatchinskaja is known for playing with great eccentricity and dynamism.The soloists proved an outstanding pairing for Al-Bustan's "All Beethoven" recital Sunday evening. For almost two hours, this magnificent duo performed three of Beethoven's sonatas for violin and piano, as well as a solo violin piece of Say's own composition. It was an intense performance that saw the soloists barely glance at one another over the course of the concert. Fiery piano and violin solos mingled with instrumental dialogues, giving birth to a unique incarnation of Beethoven.Kopatchinskaja's rendering of the pianist's "Cleopatra for Violin Solo" was flabbergasting. Long-term residents of the Middle East could easily discern the region's musical influences in the composition. Punctuating the soloist's performance was her flaming arpeggios and pizzicato (string-plucking).
