Focus Residency II: Folk Tales with Arnaud Sussmann

Concert Program

The Folk Tales program was built around a unique and rather unusual instrumentation for string trio—two violins and a viola—seldom heard in a full chamber music program. Featuring staples of the repertoire, Antonín Dvořák’s magnificent Miniatures and Terzetto and Zoltán Kodály’s delightfully folksy Serenade, the program also offers rarely performed music by Belgian composer and violinist Eugène Ysaÿe and Russian composer Sergei Taneyev. The richness and variety in the music will surprise and delight you, as will the project’s intimate educational style. Violist extraordinaire and festival favorite Paul Neubauer will be joined onstage by virtuoso violinists Pamela Frank and Arnaud Sussmann.
