Musical Masterworks presents Mozart, Mendelssohn and more in March
For all those classical music enthusiasts out there, another weekend of Musical Masterworks is about to descend upon Old Lyme’s First Congregational Church.
This month, the concert series will host Korean-born pianist Jeewon Park in a performance with her husband/cellist and Masterworks artistic director Edward Arron. Park and Arron, who have performed alongside one another for years, have been lauded for their performances by international publications including the New York Times. The two, the paper wrote in 2012, "play together with spirited responsiveness.” Masterworks veteran violinist Chee-Yun, who has dazzled audiences with her compelling artistry across five continents, is also slated to perform alongside the couple.
The three musicians will feature pieces by Mozart (Sonata in B-flat Major for Violin and Piano, K. 378), Mendelssohn (Piano Trio in C minor, Opus 66) and Bernstein (Piano Trio (1937)) as well as a cello and piano concerto “Dreaming” composed by Amy Beach (the first successful American female composer).
Musical Masterworks, 5 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, First Congregational Church, 2 Ferry Road, Old Lyme; $40, $5 for students under 23 with ID; (860) 434-2252, musicalmasterworks.org.
