Yelena and Michael warmly invite you to an intimate home salon concert at Yelena's apartment on Upper West Side, in Celebration of 200th birthday of Charles-Valentin Alkan (1813-1888) -- one of the most enigmatic and perhaps least well-known of the great 19th-century composers and virtuoso pianists, who was both a friend and rival of Chopin and Liszt. This special program, featuring Romantic masterworks for cello and piano, will pair Beethoven's celestial, late-style Sonata no. 4 in C Major for cello and piano, op. 102, no. 1 (1815) with Alkan's seldom-heard, transcendent Sonate de concert for cello and piano, op. 47 - to quote the great Alkan pianist, Ronald Smith, "possibly the most brilliant and certainly one of the most original and rewarding works for the medium to come out of the nineteenth century." The program will also include a pair of shorter Romantic miniatures written by Alkan's two great contemporaries: Mendelssohn's effusive and lyrical Song without Words in E Major for cello and piano, op. 109 (1845) and Liszt's dreamy and wistful Romance Oubliee, arr. for cello and piano (1880).

This special performance is NOT to be missed, and will be followed by wine & cheese reception.

Yelena's living room accommodates just 22 people, so early registration is strongly encouraged!

We can't wait to see you there!!!
