CSO Concertmaster and Principal Pops Conductor Yuriy Bekker will be joined by renowned pianist Andrew Armstrong in a recital celebrating their recently released CD, "Twentieth Century Duos". They will perform selections from the CD, which are some of the most beautiful and rarely-performed works of the twentieth century by Erich Korngold and Aaron Copland. Signed CD's will be available at a reception following the recital.
Bekker says of the album, “The idea for this project finally came to fruition with the help of the rare 1686 Ex-Nachez Stradivarius violin. This is the first sound recording of this violin and I believe these particular selections by Korngold and Copland highlight its most magical qualities.”
