About This Performance

Due to the imminent birth of his child, Christian Tetzlaff has had to cancel his upcoming U.S. tour and cannot appear for us as planned this Friday.  However, we are very pleased to report that violinist Benjamin Beilman and pianist Andrew Tyson will instead present a recital of works by Mozart and Janacek.

Mozart: Violin Sonata in G Major, K. 301
Mozart: Violin Sonata in E Minor, K. 304
Janáček: Violin Sonata, JW VII/7
Janáček: Dumka, JW VII/4
Mozart: Violin Sonata in A Major, K. 526

Free pre-concert panel discussion at 6:15 pm as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA).

String Theory: Exploring the Nature, Craft and Soul of Musical Instruments delves into the material culture of music, exploring the relationship between the things we create and their identity as independent artistic enablers.  Samuel Zygmuntowicz, renowned instrument-maker in New York City, and Will Straw, Professor of Communications in the Department of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University (Montreal), will examine the constantly-evolving art of violin-making and the unique voice each instrument holds in its design.

Part two of the project will take place before the Takács Quartet concert on Wednesday, April 13th at 6:15 pm.

Produced in partnership with the Kimmel Center as part of the Philadelphia International festival of the Arts.
