Dover Quartet’s Residency Recital is March 6
Called “sublime” by the Strad, Curtis’s quartet in residence is making waves across the continent. Hear this prize-winning ensemble in a free recital on March 6, featuring quartets by Janácek and Mendelssohn. Curtis faculty member and violist Steven Tenenbom joins the Dovers for the String Quintet No. 1 by Brahms.
Curtis from Coast to Coast in March
A wind quintet of Curtis students tours with alumna pianist Di Wu (’05) to Costa Rica, Massachusetts, New Mexico, California, and Washington State from March 12 to 23. Their program embraces chamber music classics (Mozart, Poulenc) and three generations of Curtis composers (Barber, Higdon, Kramarchuk). See www.curtis.edu/CurtisOnTour for details. Meanwhile the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble debuts in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall in New York on March 20—and Curtis e-News readers receive a 50% discount on tickets ordered from Carnegie Hall (use promo code CTS19000). The all-Penderecki program, repeating in Philadelphia on March 22, will be led by the composer.
Beethoven Sonatas on Coursera—Second Chance!
