Pegasus Rising young artist Glenna Curren will present a program with friends Arnie Tanimoto and Christopher Petit. Around the turn of the 19th century, a new wave of cellists began to elevate music for their instrument to heights of unprecedented virtuosity. Among the most influential of these cellists was Bernhard Romberg, whose pedagogical developments have been reflected in every subsequent generation of performers. Join us for an exploration of charming and rarely heard 19th century cello music, written by virtuosic performers for themselves and for their students— put into context alongside one of the famous works that influenced this early romantic style. The program will feature the music of Ludwig van Beethoven and of 19th century cellists Bernhard Romberg, Friedrich Dotzauer, and Friedrich Kummer.
A prism-style concert, showcasing a sampling of Rochester's rich early music offerings. Glenna Curren presents a selection of solo Bach and Monteverdi's Laudate Dominum, in collaboration with Justin Neely, sackbut and Christopher Petit, harpsichord.
