Transcending Artistic Boundaries
Performing together since 2004, Kevin Lawrence, string chair at UNC School of the Arts, and newly appointed UNCSA pianist Dmitri Shteinberg explore Western artists’ fascination with the Near East. The duo draws upon the examples of the Dutch painter Jan Lievens’s sumptuous The Feast of Esther (1625) and American composer Henry Cowell’s work Homage to Iran, which uses special techniques to conjure Persian drumming.
Also featured on the program are two masterpieces from the heart of the violin repertoire—the sonatas by Maurice Ravel and Aaron Copland—and contemporary American composer Paul Schoenfield's lively Souvenirs, a celebration of popular dance styles of the Americas.
Chamber music inspired by works of art in the Museum’s special exhibitions and permanent collection. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Museum Box Office, (919) 715-5923. Tickets may also be obtained from the Raleigh Chamber Music Guild by calling (919) 821-2030.
