Friends Cole Concert Series Continues at Greenwich Library

| No Comments

November marks the return of classical music to the Greenwich Library. The Friends Cole Concert Series presents a pair of performances paying tribute to some history's most influential composers with the Musicians from Marlboro and the debut of Jeremy Denk at the Cole Auditorium.

 

The Musicians from Marlboro, the touring extension of the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, return to Greenwich Library on Saturday, November 14, at 4 p.m. A new quintet of classical musicians -- including violinist Soovin Kim, violist Beth Guterman, cellist Michal Korman, flutist Joshua Smith and pianist Renana Gutman -- will recreate masterpieces such as Mozart's Quartet in C Major and Brahms Quartet in C Minor. The Musicians from Marlboro will also honor the works of Kaija Saariaho, Toru Takemitsu and Olivier Messiaen.

Jeremy Denk is one of the most versatile and compelling pianists of his generation. He will perform on the Library's Steinway Concert Grand Piano, on Sunday November 22, at 4 p.m. Denk's current recital tour features a fascinating programmatic pairing -- Ives' "Concord" Sonata and Beethoven's "Hammerklavier." He will also perform works by György Ligeti, Elliott Carter, Morton Feldman, and Thomas Adès.

Both performances are presented by the Friends of Greenwich Library and are free and open to the public. For more information, please call the Friends Office at 203-622-7938.
