Friday Intimate Concerts take place in a stylish home-the preferred up-close and personal setting for chamber music—the original party music. Each concert is followed by a scrumptious reception along with an exclusive ‘back-stage-pass’ accessibility to the artists. The scene is festive and fun, and the music is to die for. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry… and we’ll do it all together. Very close together.
Tickets: $60 per person
Directions to the concert will be emailed to all ticket holders the week of the concert.
More about these artists
Pianist Gregory Allen and violinist Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio combine the force of their instruments for “String Theory,” which presents three pieces: Duo for Violin and Piano by Franz Schubert, Violin Sonata by Fazil Say, and D Minor Sonata by Johannes Brahms. Schubert’s piece spans twinkling, soft passages whose ethereal notes suddenly give way to bold, decisive chords before again becoming airborne. Plucked violin strings punctuate dreamy, asymmetrical washes in Say’s sonata, whereas Brahms’s extended violin notes form a dynamic landscape with which a piano melody contrasts and rejoins, occasionally startling listeners with sudden bursts of tempo and shouts of “Surprise!”
Duo for Violin and Piano in A Major, D. 574 | Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
Sonata for Violin and Piano | Fazil Say (b. 1970)
