CHAMBER SOLOISTS OF DETROIT
All StRings Considered
Saturday, May 7th @ 8:00 PM
This concert is made possible with generous support from Salon Series Genre Underwriters,
Maurice & Linda Binkow.
KCH’s Salon Series celebrates classical music in an intimate setting that is reminiscent of the 19th century style salon or parlour concerts – a concert style which would have been entirely familiar to composers like Schubert, Schumann, Chopin and Liszt, and which offers audiences an opportunity to experience world-class chamber music in a living room setting.
Returning to Kerrytown Concert House to celebrate CSD’s 10th season, violinists Amy Schwartz Moretti & Timothy Braun and cellists Edward Arron & Erik Ásgeirsson join guest violist Paul Laraia to perform Schubert’s monument of string chamber music, his beloved Cello Quintet, Bohuslav Martinu’s scintillating Suite for Violin and Cello and the virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia for Violin and Cello.
Get acquainted with the artists at CSD’s signature talkback – Just Between Us! – a welcome opportunity for the artists to engage with audience members from the stage.
Don’t miss this outstanding Salon Series program for which Kerrytown Concert House is the perfect setting!
