Cleveland Institute of Music
What better way to open ChamberFest Cleveland’s 10th season than with the brilliant joyousness of Mozart on duo pianos? Tonight’s program also introduces the season-wide celebration of composer George Walker, the first Black composer to win a Pulitzer Prize, with his complex and lyrical Cello Sonata. And talk about a big finish: the “heavenly length” of Brahms’s most extensive instrumental work fairly bursts with Viennese flamboyance and Schubertian charm.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart/Edvard Grieg
