December 7 & 8, 2019

Musical Masterworks was delighted to welcome back world-renowned artists –  flutist Tara Helen O’Connor, pianist Adam Neiman, who joined cellist Edward Arron – for a virtuosic and vividly colorful December program.


Neiman began the program with Chopin’s beloved  E-Major Scherzo for Solo Piano; O’Connor and Arron joined forces for the fiery romp, The Jet Whistle, by Villa-Lobos; next Neiman and Arron rendered the hauntingly beautiful Air for Cello and Piano, composed in 2004 by Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts; and the three will came together for two magnificent trios: the youthful and romantic G Major Trio by Debussy, and the sparkling and soulful e minor Trio by the extraordinary 19th century composer, Louise Farrenc.


Chopin: Scherzo in E Major for Solo Piano, Opus 54

Villa-Lobos: Assobio a Játo (The Jet Whistle) for Flute and Cello

Debussy: Trio in g minor

Kevin Puts: Air for Cello and Piano (2004)

Farrenc: Trio in e minor, Opus 45
