In conjunction with the Qu4rtets Project featuring the work of artists Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman, composer Christopher Theofanidis has composed a work for String Quartet and Piano that evokes the brooding and brilliant light of T.S. Eliot’s poem, Four Quartets. The Kandinsky Trio will be joined by guest artists Fritz Gearhart, violin, and Amadi Azikiwe, vola. This concert is being presented by the Performing Arts Series and the Kandinsky Trio in support of the Qu4rtets Project at Roanoke College, funded by the Copenhaver Scholar-in-Residence Program and the Jordan Endowment.
Olin Theater, 7:30 p.m.
When & Where
The Kandinsky Trio is a chamber group founded in 1987 by Dr. Elizabeth Bachelder, Alan Weinstein and Benedict Goodfriend. The Trio has been awarded the Chamber Music America Residency Award and awards from the Theodore Presser and Carpenter foundations.
The group has performed nationally as well as internationally. New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and Tampa are merely a fraction of the cities in the U.S. that have heard the sounds of the Trio. Some international cities include Bratislava, Slovakia; Vienna, Austria; Budapest, Hungary; and Zagreb, Croatia. The list goes on with over 175 cities worldwide.
When they aren't on the road, the members find themselves at the place they've considered home for over 24 years-Roanoke College-perfecting their art, performing it and sharing it with the college community. As resident artists, the members of the group have significant ties to Roanoke College and especially to their students.
