Santa Fe Concert Series

2020 Spring Semester Concerts

Fred Kronacher & Marina Magazinick, Piano

January 26, 3 p.m., Great Hall

“A la Francaise” featuring music for 4-hand piano by Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, and Poulenc.

The Art of the Cello Sonata: Beethoven, Prokofiev, Debussy

March 6, 7:30 p.m., Great Hall

St. John’s College welcomes back two favorite chamber musicians, the Russian-born couple Dmitry Kouzov, cello, and Yulia Fedoseeva (Kouzova), piano.

This concert will feature several great works from the repertoire: sonatas by Prokofiev and Debussy, and two works by Beethoven, whose 250th birthday we celebrate this year.

The great Rostopovich praised young Kouzov as a “true artist.” Like the Russian Maestro, he has become one of the most celebrated soloists of his generation, performing in the most prestigious concert halls of Europe and the U.S. and at the major international music festivals. He has taught at Oberlin and Juilliard, and is currently Associate Professor of Cello at the University of Illinois. His recordings include the Schumann piano trios, the two brilliant cello concertos of Shostakovich, and innovative new works for cello by Sean Hickey and George Walker. He has performed with virtuosi Joshua Bell and violist Yuri Bashmet, as well as pioneering composer and conductor Krzysztof Penderecki.
