Classical Concert: The Irrera Brothers
violin and piano
Sunday, March 10, 2019
Artistic influences help shape the creative process, and in this special concert, the talented Irrera Brothers will explore the idea of influence through their performance of works by Stravinsky, Vitali, and Beethoven. Known for their expressive playing, the Irrera Brothers – Steinway Artist pianist Joseph and violinist John – have performed internationally as well as at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Center. The concert will have a pivotal end with Beethoven’s historic Kreutzer Sonata. Enjoy an afternoon of enchanting music and fascinating insights.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of select works from the Crocker’s permanent collection, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
