Mon 4/15, 6:00p First Muse presents Serenade for Cello and Piano by Marek Harris

Mar 29, 2019

The First Muse series has a huge presence in this year's Performance Rochester, and with good reason: founder and artistic director Melissa Matson decided to end the series with one last concert in November, 2018. We're giving this mainstay of Rochester chamber music series a big farewell with six appearances throughout the month.

First Muse appearance number four takes us back to the May, 2018 concert with pianist Diane Walsh and a world premiere by Marek Harris, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music. Mr. Harris' music has been described as beautiful, uncompromising, and original--all attributes you will find in this Serenade for Cello and Piano. Former Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Cellist Stefan Reuss and joins Diane Walsh.
