This concert will feature some of classical music’s premier young voices from the Juilliard School of Music along with a special appearance by the legendary Itzhak Perlman, accompanied by his long-time collaborator, pianist Rohan De Silva. The performers include Juilliard’s Graduate Resident Quartet Biava String Quartet (Austin Hartman and Hyunsu Ko, violins, Mary Persin, viola, and Jason Calloway, cello) together with guest artists clarinetist Tibi Cziger, bassist Andrew Roitstein and percussionists Alexander Lipowski and Michael Caterisano and the N-E-W Trio (Andrew Wan, violin, Gal Nyska, cello, and Julio Elizalde, piano).

Works to be performed will include several rare masterworks from the early twentieth-century Russian Jewish school of composers. These include Alexander Krein’s 1910 Jewish Sketches, #2, Joel Engel’s Dybbuk Suite (1922), Leo Zeitlin’s Eli Zion (1914), Solomon Rosowsky’s Fantastic Dance, and Mikhail Gnesin’s Requiem Trio (1943). Complementing these older pieces will be a performance of composer Osvaldo Golijov’s contemporary classic, The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind (1994).
