BRATTLEBORO- On Sunday, April 29, at 4 pm, the Brattleboro Music Center, 72 Blanche Moyse Way, will host a faculty duo recital with cellist Paul Cohen and pianist Nicholas Burns.
Cohen has performed on major concert stages throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. Since his orchestral debut at the age of 12 in his native Minneapolis, he has become increasingly in demand as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. His solo repertoire ranges from Gabrielli to the most current unaccompanied compositions. He has also commissioned works for a six-stringed electric cello and has given performances of the complete cycle of Beethoven Cello Sonatas and Bach Cello Suites in single concert formats. His playing has been described as “especially eloquent” by New Yorker Magazine, “radiant” by the Boston Globe, and “virtuosic” by Strad Magazine.
Burns has performed in the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, and all around the UK. His performances have been broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and Radio Maribou (Germany), and he has recorded three critically acclaimed albums for Nimbus. He is most often heard alongside violinist Louisa Stonehill as part of the Steinberg Duo. This season sees his first appearances in New England, including a recital series at the Redfern Arts Centre at Keene State College, as well as the release of a new recording of violin sonatas by John Ireland, Franz Reizenstein, and Geoffrey Bush for Lyrita.
Tickets are $30 for patrons, $20 general admission, and $10 for students; under 18 are free.
