Society for Chamber Music in Rochester: Baroque and Blue - 8/23/20

Aug 17, 2020

The Society for Chamber Music in Rochester served up a musical potpourri for this concert, with something old, something new, three young artists, and the jazzy side of Juliana Athayde. In addition to the always stellar line up of musicians from the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and the Eastman School of Music, the Amici Piano Trio--talented teens from the Hochstein School of Music-- got to take center stage for a flawless performance of Brahms. And, as happens each season with the SCMR, Juliana got a chance to let down her hair and swing a little. This concert was recorded on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in the Hochstein School of Music Performance Hall.
