Beautiful Minds: Beethoven, Faure & Martinu
Katie collaborates with MSO cellist Miranda Brockman and an award-winning pianist Kenji Fujimura to celebrate Spring season and present a diverse program of chamber music for flute, cello and piano. This soirée will open with Beethoven’s Magic Flute Variations for cello and piano followed by Faure Sonata and Beethoven’s “Spring” sonata No. 5 in F major (originally written for violin and piano) reimagined on the flute and piano. For the last item, the three performers will introduce the most endearing personality, Martinu to conclude the concert with colorful, enchanting, sonorous interplay between flute, cello and piano in trio.
