Roman Rabinovich, piano
“Mr. Rabinovich performed with uncommon sensitivity and feeling, playing with a wonderful brio and spontaneity, crisp rhythmic bite, and abundant colorings.” — The New York Times
Escher String Quartet
“The Escher players seemed to make time stand still, effortlessly distilling the essence of this introspective music with expressive warmth and a natural confiding intimacy.” — Chicago Classical Review
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Mozart called Haydn a “great man and my dearest friend,” and Beethoven knelt before Haydn on his 76th birthday to fervently kiss his hands and forehead. Haydn’s celebrated wit, grace, and eloquence will be richly on display in this musical survey of his seminal chamber works for piano, string quartets, and piano trio.
As a special treat, the multitalented pianist Roman Rabinovich will accompany his own short animated film entitled “Imaginary Encounters with Haydn.”
