About this concert

Internationally renowned artists Kristian Chong and Brigid Coleridge team up for an electrifying trio of great works. Brigid is the violinist in the Boston-based Merz Trio, recent winners of the prestigious New York Concert Artists Guild competition. She joins Kristian for two impassioned works by George Enescu and Bela Bartók, and Mozart’s Sonata for piano and violin No.1. Enescu’s Impressions d’enfance is a partly autobiographical suite of 10 evocative works stemming from the composer’s earliest memories and requires fearsome virtuosity from both performers. Bartók’s Sonata for violin and piano No.2 is a similarly poignant, intense and hair-raising work that draws you into its intricate world almost immediately. This recital of formidable masterpieces is not to be missed.
