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.
Our second First Muse performance is from that final concert on November 18, 2018. Jon Nakamatsu was in town for the show, but sat back as violist Melissa Matson was joined by violinist Patricia Sunwoo and cellist Mimi Hwang for Dohnanyi's Serenade for String Trio, a romantic work with a hint of Hungarian folk music.
Listen to the first movement of the Serenade, "Marcia" (Allegro).
