Van Cliburn Pianist Sunwoo Plays Brahms, Chopin
The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center presents A Night of Chopin and Brahms on Sunday, March 20, at 4 p.m. in partnership with Close Encounters With Music.
The program showcases Van Cliburn Medalist Yekwon Sunwoo’s piano prowess both as a soloist and a chamber musician and partner.
Violinist Daniel Phillips, violist Daniel Panner and cellist and artistic director Yehuda Hanani join Sunwoo for Brahms’s epic Piano Quartet Opus 25 in G minor with its intoxicating Gypsy finale.
One of Brahms’s most viscerally seductive works, the Quartet in G minor is much beloved for its famous rousing finale, the Rondo alla Zingarese (Gypsy Rondo), reflecting Brahms’s lifelong fascination with Hungarian folk music.
In-person tickets are $52 ($28 balcony); virtual tickets are $28 (a private link is sent, to view the concert one week after the performance).
