Violinist Zorman, pianist Golka to play Brattleboro Music Center
BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center's Chamber Series will present violinist Itamar Zorman and pianist Adam Golka at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21 at the music center, on Blanche Moyse Way in Brattleboro.
Since his emergence as the top prize winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition, Zorman has performed as soloist and chamber musician around the world. Recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust award, he is a regular participant at the Marlboro Music Festival as well as festivals in the U.S. and across Europe. Increasingly in demand as soloist with orchestras around the world, Zorman just performed Alban Berg's Violin Concerto.
Golka returns to the BMC Chamber Music Series following numerous performances with orchestras throughout Europe and across the United States. Originally from Texas, Golka is currently working on a project to present all 32 Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas in multiple U.S. cities. Golka is artist in residence at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The duo will present a engaging program of standard and non-standard repertoire: Ben-Haim's Berceuse Sfaradite and Toccata, Op. 34, No. 3; Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 1 G major, op. 78; Messiaen's Theme and variations; and Schubert's Fantasy in C major, D. 934.
Tickets are $40 preferred seating, $20 general admission, and are available online at www.bmcvt.org, by calling the BMC at 802-257-4523 or by visiting the center at 72 Blanche Moyse Way, Brattleboro.
Thanks to BMC's friends at Yellow Barn for their generous loan of their Steinway Concert Grand for this performance.
