Concert: The Garden Project, with Michael Brown, Alexander Fiterstein, Nicholas Canellakis and Elena Urioste
Sunday, February 25, 2018
2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
Described as “outstanding” by Albany’s Times Union, these musicians are acclaimed for the exuberant communicativeness with which they play. Recent highlights include the Beethoven Triple Concerto with the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Los Alamos Concerts, Merkin Concert Hall, the Vancouver Recital Society, the Ravinia Festival and Chicago’s radio station WFMT. The members of the Brown-Urioste-Canellakis Trio are composer-pianist Michael Brown, violinist Elena Urioste and cellist Nicholas Canellakis. Joining the ensemble is guest clarinetist Alex Fiterstein. The Wave Hill program will be a blend of traditional chamber works by Debussy and Fauré, and a movement from Olivier Messaien’s 20th Century landmark work, Quartet for the End of Time. The centerpiece of the program is the world premiere of a new work by composer-pianist Michael Brown commissioned by Wave Hill. Sounds of nature will resonate inside Armor Hall as the inspiration for these two contemporary works.
