Lobero Theatre Chamber Music Project

This program combines wildly different musical languages and types of collaboration between violin and piano. Bach’s contribution has both singing melodies and careful counterpoint, Busoni’s epic sonata culminates in a majestic set of variations on a Bach chorale melody, and Grieg’s last sonata brings together passionate agitation, lyrical tunes and dance rhythms. It’s also showcasing a rare and special selection in Ferruccio Busoni’s Sonata no. 2 for violin and piano. Like Franz Liszt, Busoni was both one of the great pianists in history and an innovative composer. This late-Romantic masterpiece shows Busoni’s reverence for tradition, culminating in a majestic set of variations on a Bach chorale melody. Alessio Bax, Piano Combining exceptional lyricism and insight with consummate technique, Alessio Bax is without a doubt, “among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public” (Gramophone). The celebrated pianist has appeared on five continents with more than 100 orchestras, including the London, Royal, and St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestras, the Boston, Dallas, Sydney, and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras, and the NHK Symphony in Japan. A Steinway artist, he now lives in New York City with Lucille Chung and their daughter, Mila. Benjamin Beilman, Violin Born in 1989, American violinist Benjamin Beilman is winning plaudits across the globe for his compelling and impassioned performances, his deep rich tone and searing lyricism. The Scotsman has described him as “a remarkable talent, delivering playing of rare insight and generosity, as captivating as it is gloriously entertaining” and the New York Times has praised his “handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence [which] showed why he has come so far so fast.”
