Run Time

Running Time: TBA


Pamela Frank, violin
Peter Serkin, piano

One of the first women to win the Avery Fisher Prize, American violinist Pamela Frank has established herself as a renowned virtuoso. A compelling solo artist “whose polish and expressive depth seem to wrap themselves around whatever she touches” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), for this performance she unites with frequent collaborator pianist Peter Serkin, “one of the supreme musicians of our time” (New York Magazine). While their past partnerships have focused on Brahms, this concert will highlight Bach’s sonatas.

Sonata in B minor, BWV 1014
Sonata in A major, BWV 1015
Sonata in E major, BWV 1016
Sonata in C minor, BWV 1017
Sonata in F minor, BWV 1018
Sonata in G major, BWV 1019

A Note from Joseph “Yossi” Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas Chamber Music
A rarity by comparison to their much more often-played “cousins,” the solo violin sonatas/partitas, these six sonatas are just as inspired and as riveting. Bach at his instrumental best! What a joy to be hearing them played by these two great musicians!
