Classical Concert: Andrei Baumann, piano
Sunday, May 12, 2019
Award-winning pianist Andrei Baumann makes his triumphant return to the Crocker to perform two beloved works of 19th-century European classical music: Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 28 in A major, Op. 101; and Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 3. Works of enormous technical challenge and emotive beauty, both offer a stunning musical counterpart to the Crocker’s collection of 19th-century European painting. Baumann has been part of Carnegie Hall’s Distinctive Debut Series and has toured throughout the world.
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.
Before the performance, at 1 and 2 PM, enjoy an in-depth, docent-led tour of select works from the Crocker’s permanent collection of 19th-century European painting, to help put the music in context with the art.
