The Voice of the Violin - Brahms on the Bluff

Sunday, January 28 at 3 p.m.

  • David Allen Wehr, pianist
  • Charles Stegeman, violinists

Lyrical and intense, the three violin-piano duo sonatas have long taken their place as the undisputed classics of the genre. The Four Piano Pieces, op. 119, Brahms's final work for the piano, are, in turn, introspective, nostalgic, playful and passionate.

Charles StegemanCharles Stegeman, Chair of Strings at Duquesne University, was for many years the violinist of the Sartory Trio (with David Allen Wehr as pianist). He is currently Concertmaster of the Pittsburgh Opera and Ballet Orchestra and artist-in-residence at Azusa College in California. A native of Vancouver, he is a graduate of both the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and the Juilliard School in New York City. He has founded numerous music festivals all over the US, and is currently Artistic Director of the Sunflower Chamber Music Festival in Topeka, Kansas.

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.
