Dr. Joanne Stolen: A great classical music opportunity Friday
Concert Friday, February 11, 2011, Colorado Mountain College, 7 p.m.Don’t miss the opportunity to hear two very fine, charismatic, impressively accomplished musicians play Friday, 7 p.m. at Colorado Mountain College, Breckenridge. I am lost for enough complimentary terms to describe these two fine young musicians. They are not only talented, but delightful, personable young people.Pianist Zsolt Bognr, although still in his 20s, has a most remarkable resume, and accolades from presses worldwide. He has given solo performances all over the world. He is the winner of numerous awards and competitions, and has appeared in Lincoln and Kennedy Centers, Russia, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and a 2009 debut in Tokyo’s Suntory Hall. He has performed broadcast recitals for television in Europe and NPR in the U.S. He was a member of the NRO the summer of 2009, and gave a special solo performance last winter at CMC. Violist Brandie Phillips was assistant concertmaster in 2009 and concertmaster of the 2010 National Repertory Orchestra, and has had the distinction of being concertmaster for several other orchestras. This is a position of honor in an orchestra. She has performed as soloist and violinist at Carnegie Hall, as well as other venues in the US and Europe including at the NRO in Breckenridge.The program includes: Sonata for violin & piano No. 27 in G major, K. 379 of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Sonata in A Major of Csar Franck; Romance No. 2 in F major, Op. 50, of Ludwig van Beethoven; and Sonata No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 45 of Edvard Grieg.There will be a chance to mingle with fellow music lovers and the musicians at 7 p.m. for coffee and dessert followed by the concert at a bargain price of $25 per person ($5 for student 18 and younger).
