• USCB Festival Series kicks off: Albert Einstein often rested from his deep thoughts by playing his well-worn violin that he had named Lina. When he did so, his favorite composer was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Einstein greatly appreciated the mathematical precision and ethereal beauty of Mozart’s music, saying: “Mozart’s music is so pure and beautiful that I see it as a reflection of the inner beauty of the universe itself.” Come to the first concert of this year’s USCB Festival Series on Sunday, Nov. 2 at 5 p.m. at USCB Center for the Arts to experience what Einstein was talking about. Mozart’s vibrant Trio in B-flat Major, K. 502 begins the program with a blend of sophisticated conversation, caressing song, and witty repartee. Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodàly, a man of indefatigable energy, vision, and honor, whose musical contributions cut across disciplines and generations, will lead up to intermission. Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7, written during the final run up to WWI in the spring of 1914, combines the feverish energy of the era with passionate, idiosyncratic folk-like melodies. This three-movement work demands blistering technique and pedal-to-the metal commitment from the performers which in turn rewards listeners with an intense experience. The concert concludes with Robert Schumann’s Piano Trio in d minor, Op. 63, a work both robust and intimate which runs the gamut from whispered conversation to symphonic extravagance. Returning to play this interesting and compelling mix of music will be three Festival Series veterans. Artistic Director, host, and cellist Edward Arron; brilliant pianist Jeewon Park, and Lowcountry sensation, violinist Tessa Lark. Call 843-208-8246 or email sjbreton@uscb.edu Staci Breton for tickets.
