MUSIC DURING WAR, PANDEMIC, ILLNESS, AND LOSS

A century ago, two European composers – Zoltán Kodály and Maurice Ravel – wrote duets for violin and cello during tumultuous times not too different from today. The year 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of two of the most celebrated violin cello duets written in the 20th century.

Join us at St. Thomas à Becket Episcopal Church at 7 PM on February 3rd. Anne Martindale Williams, the Principal Cellist of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be joined by our Artistic Director, Sunmi Chang.

RAVEL | Sonata for Violin and Cello
Written against a backdrop of war, illness and the loss of his beloved mother, this work accordingly reflects a major turning point in his musical language.

GLIÈRE | 8 Pieces, Op. 39 for Violin and Cello
These duets are a set of miniatures, each with their own charming character.

KODALY | Duo for Violin and Cello, Op.7
“The voice of Kodály in music is the voice of Hungary.” Kodály’s deeply rooted love for the Hungarian folk tradition is fully embodied in this virtuosic duo for violin and cello – one of the most powerful works written for Violin and Cello!

Your safety is important to us! Here are the ways we're promoting a safe and spectacular concert experience:

- Masks are required for all guests. There will be free KF94 masks at the door.
- We will also be checking all of our guests’ temperature upon entry.
- Audience chairs will be socially-distanced in the space to the best of our ability and guests may select their seats from those available.
