Artist Showcase 1

Tickets from $28 | Seat Layout

The intoxicating power of melody will captivate you in this showcase for Festival faculty artists. Beethoven's early Quintet for Piano and Winds is indebted to his Classical elders, yet infused with the rich Romanticism toward which he ultimately moved. Andre Previn's Four Songs, based on poems by Toni Morrison, oscillates between haunting and dreamy moments and bright and sassy retorts.  Bruch's Romance for Viola and Piano is packed with soaring tunes, while Arensky's Piano Trio No. 1 will dazzle you with its lyric virtuosity.
