Pair Performs Pair of Pieces with ProMusica Pair

FOUR AUDIO PIECES - ALL INTERVIEWS OK...so the title was  a stretch, but it made you look, right? ProMusica Chamber Orchestra welcomed two stellar artists, Violinist Ani Kavafian and  Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott for a pair of weekend performances at the Southern Theatre. The two joined forces for a rare performance of Mendelssohn's Double Concerto for Violin and Piano, written when he was only fourteen!  Each soloist also joined a member of ProMusica in two other great works; Ann-Marie McDermott and ProMusica Principal Trumpet Tom Battenberg played Shostakovich's exciting Piano Concerto No. 1. Ani Kavafian and ProMusica Concert Master Katie McLin opened the evening with  J.S. Bach's 2 Violin Concerto. I hope you were able to join them, and that you stayed for a few minutes afterwards for Coda...a casual conversation between Timothy Russell and me, along with the evening's soloists.  It's your opportunity to ask questions and get to know the musicians a little better. As usual, Timothy Russell stopped by the WOSU studios before the performance to fill us in.  --Boyce Lancaster [audio:tim-1.mp3] Concert overview [audio:tim-bach.mp3] Bach 2 Violin Concerto [audio:tim-tom.mp3] Shostakovich Concerto for Piano and Trumpet [audio:tim-mendelssohn.mp3] Mendelssohn Concerto for Piano and Violin
