Saturday October 30, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$20.00
“A cellist of power and grace [who possesses] mature artistry and willingness to go to the brink.”
One of the most exciting musicians of his generation and a multidisciplinary artist as natural in the worlds of avant-garde and pop music as he is in core classical repertoire, cellist Seth Parker Woods makes his 92Y debut with award-winning pianist Andrew Rosenblum. Their gorgeous program juxtaposes works by core European composers with African American composers including the groundbreaking Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker, and features a melodic, stunningly beautiful Mendelssohn sonata, Walker’s lovely, enigmatic Cello Sonata, and a trio of rhapsodic short works by Schumann. Expect additional selections by the marvelous turn-of-the-century composer Florence Price and a jazz-inflected work by Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, for a concert as deep and expansive as the artists performing it.
Concert also available via livestream and available for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
