Free. Tickets required.
This concert features a performance of Beethoven’s letters by Stanley Morstein and three of Beethoven’s string quartets by piano DUO Ho and Ahuvia, who have been heard in live radio broadcasts on Chicago’s WFMT, New York’s WNYC and WQXR, Washington’s WETA and Baltimore’s WBJC. The duo made their orchestral debut as soloists with the Czech Republic’s Pilsen Radio Symphony Orchestra. The New York Times praised their “beautifully understated performances” on their 2012 CD Bach Crossings. Glowing reviews for the album have followed suit in the Huffington Post. This evening promises to be filled with the multiple levels of artistry in music and in performance.
