  • Stefan Jackiw - Brahms

$30.00

After Stefan Jackiw’s Kimmel Center recital debut in the fall of 2015 with Jeremy Denk in a magnificent evening of all four Ives violin sonatas, PCMS audiences pleaded that we bring back this über-talented artist as soon as possible. The Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient’s second appearance on the Perelman Theater stage also spotlights the stunningly-talented pianist Anna Polonsky in a program featuring a Philadelphia premiere by Boston native David Fulmer, as well as two of the Brahms violin sonatas—extraordinary masterpieces that occupy their own rarefied worlds of elegant construction, romantic sweep, and exquisite beauty.

C. Schumann: Three Romances, Op. 22
Brahms: Violin Sonata in D Minor, Op. 108
Fulmer: They Turned Their Channeled Faces to the Sky [Philadelphia Premiere]
Brahms: Violin Sonata in G Major, Op. 78
