Two evenings of cello and piano music come to Staller Center in April. Stony Brook’s professor of music and renowned cellist, Colin Carr, will perform with pianist Thomas Sauer, a highly sought-after soloist, chamber musician, and teacher who is a member of the Mannes Trio, ensemble-in-residence at the Mannes College of Music in New York City.
The concerts will include the complete works for cello and piano by Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, and Felix Mendelssohn, and are scheduled for Monday, April 12, and Thursday, April 15, at 8:00 pm. One ticket reserves a seat in the Recital Hall for both evenings. Unfamiliar masterpieces will be played along with some of the most beloved works in the cello literature.
“We offer these recitals as an exploration of the musical connections between Mendelssohn, Schumann, and the much younger Brahms,” said Carr and Sauer. “All three show their true colors in their music for cello and piano.”
Tickets are $42. To order visit www.stallercenter.com or call 632-ARTS.
