Description

THE NEW YORKERS - Pegasus at Mana: Chamber Series Reception: 6:30pm Concert: 7:00pm

Event Details

Featuring THE NEW YORKERS, Eiko Kano (violin) and Karén Hakobyan (piano) prior their departure for an extensive summer tour of Japan. They will present a chamber program structured around two neoclassical masterpieces - Stravinsky's Suite Italienne and Prokofiev's Sonata in D Major Op. 94a. The program will also include Brahm's Second Sonata and Selections from Gershwin's Porgy & Bess.

“The kinetic violinist’s exterior belies a fiery musician, and the vibrant pianist’s performance belies a serious interior: THE NEW YORKERS are the perfect foils for one another, and play in perfect balance.” -The Drozdoff Society
