The Cello Rules - Brahms on the Bluff

Sunday, January 15 at 3 p.m.

Brahms wrote two tremendous duo sonatas for cello and piano, played here by David Allen Wehr and Anne Martindale Williams, longtime principal cellist of the Pittsburgh Symphony and faculty member at Duquesne University. Wehr also will play the Six Pieces for Piano Solo, opus 118, from the very last years of Brahms's life. These autumnal works have achieved great renown for their somber beauty and depth. They consist of four thoughtful intermezzos, a dramatic ballade, and a Scottish-sounding romance.

Anne Martindale WilliamsAnne Martindale Williams is originally from Philadelphia. On graduating from the Curtis Institute, she was engaged by the Pittsburgh Symphony as Associate Principal Cellist, and was promoted to Principal Cellist by Music Director Andre Previn. She is in constant demand as a chamber music player and visits many festivals each summer.

Concerts will take place at 3 p.m. in the PNC Recital Hall on the first floor of the Mary Pappert School of Music. Join us for a 2:15 p.m. informative talk and complimentary public reception after each performance. A $10 donation is suggested.
