BRATTLEBORO -- The Wistaria Chamber Music Society continues its series of "Midwinter Fire" concerts with a program titled "Virtuosi of the Heart" on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., at the Pushkin Gallery on Main Street in Greenfield, Mass., and on Sunday at 3:30 p.m., at Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main St., Brattleboro.
The concert features Irina Bazik, piano, and Junko Watanabe, soprano, in works by Viardot-Garcia, Chopin and Rachmaninoff.
Chopin, Viardot-Garcia, and Rachmaninoff were three virtuoso performers whose genius overflowed into highly original compositions, all of them suffused, in their different ways, with longing and nostalgia.
