"The cellist Joshua Gordon is a find: a precise and poetic artist" Andrew Porter, The New Yorker
The snow is nearly gone and the Worcester Chamber Music Society has an upcoming concert "Bach and Beyond" at Worcester's Washburn Hall at Mechanics Hall on Sunday April 12. Join us for two beloved works by Bach: Cantata No. 209 Non sa che sia dolore, and an arrangement of the Goldberg Variations for string trio. The program also features a recent work by Mark Berger, Kaleidoscope for viola, marimba and piano, inspired by Bach's Sarabande from his 5th suite which I'll be playing to open Mark's work. On Saturday night April 18, the Lydian String Quartet performs again at Brandeis in seminal works by Ben Johnston (String Quartet no. 4) and Charles Ives (String Quartet no. 2), plus a remarkable recent work Sulvastutra by Evan Ziporyn, for which we will be joined by the amazing guest artists Sandeep Das on tabla and Yihan Chen on pipa.
