After 11 long weeks of sheltering-at-home, Westchester County finally began Phase One of reopening last Tuesday. Hopefully, this means that we can start dreaming about live concerts soon. (Caramoor would love to welcome you later in July!) So, we’ll wrap up our review of home performances by Caramoor artists from the “Music Never Sleeps NYC” livestreamed marathon with these four contributions.
1. Benjamin Beilman
Ben Beilman is an alumnus of our Evnin Rising Stars program. He’s now become an accomplished soloist performing with orchestras around the world. He last appeared at Caramoor in 2018 for a spine-tingling Tchaikovsky concerto with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Here he plays the first movement of Prokofiev’s solo violin Sonata, Op 115.
2. Gil Shaham, Adele Anthony, Colin and Eric Jacobsen
Husband and wife Gil Shaham and Adele Anthony joined forced “virtually” with the Jacobsen brothers to produce this wonderful video of the first movement of J.S. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor, BWV 1043. Don’t miss the fun ending! You can catch Colin and Eric again on July 23 when we livestream Musicians from The Knights from the Music Room.
3. Jessie Mills
Jessie Mills is another alumnus of the Evnin Rising Stars program. He and his wife, Rieko Aizawa, are 2/3 of the Horszowski Trio, who have also performed at Caramoor. For the Music Never Sleeps NYC marathon, they performed as a duo in the first movement of Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 3 and Chopin’s Nocturne in E Major (arr. by Saint-Saëns).
4. Inon Barnaton
Lastly, we leave you with pianist Inon Barnatan, who was scheduled to make his Caramoor recital debut this summer in the Spanish Courtyard. His program was to have included Schubert’s monumental Sonata in B-flat Major, which we share with you here instead. He will kick off our livestreams from the Music Room on July 2, but he’s changed his program, so you’ll get to hear him play Schubert’s Sonata in A Major if you tune in! This video should whet your appetite.
Wishing you good health and good music,
