Sarasa, Golka have colorful weekend

BRATTLEBORO - The Brattleboro Music Center will present two concerts this weekend.
On Saturday, November 20, at 7:30 pm, the BMC’s Guest Series will continue with the return of the Sarasa Ensemble, who will present “Kaleidoscope.” Tickets are $20 general/senior, students $10, under 18 free.  
The concert will feature colorful, ever-changing shapes in music with youthful Rimsky-Korsakov, timeless Purcell, and the genius of CPE Bach. Two new short works by Mariel Mayz and Li Qi, co-commissioned by David Stern and Sarasa Ensemble, round out the program.
On Sunday, November 21, at 4 pm, the Brattleboro Music Center Chamber Series will welcome Polish-American pianist Adam Golka. Tickets are $25.
The concert will include works by Bach, Brahms, Ligeti, and Ginastera. The program will also include Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 26 in E-flat major, op. 81a “Les Adieux,” as well as Kapustin’s Concert Etude Op. 40 No. 7: Intermezzo; Golka’s own Relevant Etude; Bacewicz’s Sonata No. 2; and Liszt’s Piano Sonata in B minor, S.178.
Golka first performed all of Beethoven’s piano sonatas when he was 18 years old, and he considers the 32 masterpieces to have been his saving grace during the COVID-19 crisis.
