Chamber music, NYC, 1 May 2009

Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom celebrates Israel Independence Day with a new program that highlights classical and Klezmer clarinetist Pavel Vinnitsky and the spectacular pianist Daniel Epstein on Friday evening, May 1st, at 8pm in Schnurmacher Chapel at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street, New York City. In May 2008, Mr. Vinnitsky was featured as the klezmer clarinet and bass clarinet soloist with the Bachanalia String Orchestra of New York in a concert dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel at Merkin Hall, NYC. The May 1st Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom concert features guest artists Daniel Epstein, piano, Eliot Bailen, cello and Artistic Director, Susan Rotholz, flute, and Pavel Vinnitsky, clarinet, in a "talk-back with the artists" after the concert. The ensemble will play works by Brahms (1833-1897), Haydn (1732-1809), and contemporary composer Paul Schoenfield (1947-), whose works are inspired by his love of Hebrew, as well as a selection of Klezmer pieces. Regulars to the chamber music concerts should note in their calendars the change from Saturday afternoon to Friday evening for this end of season performance. The free concert is open to the public. Please remember to RSVP so that we can provide seating and refreshments for the comfort of everyone. For more information and to RSVP, call the Cantor's Study 646.454.3039.
