In-synch in spirit, mind, and musical insight, Saturday Synchronisms take chamber music into the First Unitarian Church on Saturday nights, a venue small enough to maintain the intimate vibe, but big enough to let the sound come alive. The scene is casual, but spell-binding. Expect something divine to happen, but leave all the formality of heaven behind.
Tickets: $25 per person

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)
