October 19 & 20, 2019

We opened our 29th Season celebrating the Musical Masterworks debut of the brilliant and impassioned violinist, Stefan Jackiw, alongside the return of the elegant pianist and beloved Musical Masterworks veteran, Gilles Vonsattel. Stefan and Gilles opened the program with the warm and genial Sonata in G Major for Violin and Piano by Mozart; and Edward Arron, Artistic Director, had the pleasure of joining them for two Piano Trio masterpieces – Maurice Ravel’s vivid and exquisite trio in a minor and Robert Schumann’s heartbreakingly beautiful trio in d minor.


“Musical Masterworks got off to a rip-roaring start as it kicked off its 29th season of classical music performances Saturday night,”  said Lee Howard from The Day.  Read what Lee said about the opening concert of Season 29 in his review published in The Day on October 19, 2019.
