Randall Goosby, violin, and Zhu Wang, piano play Mozart, Franck, and Price

December 9, 2021

The 92nd Street Y, one of New York’s leading cultural venues, presents Randall Goosby, violin, and Zhu Wang, piano, playing Mozart, Franck, and Price on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 7:30pm ET as part of its fall classical music season, its first fully in-person season since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tickets for both the in-person and livestream options are $20-$45 and are available at 92y.org/event/randall-goosby-and-zhu-wang.

The stunning talents of 24-year-old Sphinx Competition-winning violinist Goosby were first discovered by Itzhak Perlman, with whom Goosby studied at Juilliard, and chronicled recently in a major feature in The New York Times. His playing is sumptuously in the Perlman vein — an incredibly rich and lush tone, and tremendous color, depth and expressivity. Goosby’s musical partner is the tremendously talented Young Concert Artist-winning pianist Zhu Wang, who makes his solo Carnegie Hall debut later this year. Their program features a Mozart sonata perfect for showcasing their artistry; three gorgeous, melodic works of Florence Price, arguably the first major female African American composer; and Franck’s A-Major Sonata — filled with sheer Romantic excess in the finest sense, bravura passages and beautiful interplay, and a fabulous showpiece for both violinist and pianist.

The program includes:
Mozart, Violin Sonata in B-flat Major, K 454
Price, Fantasy No. 1 in G Minor
Price, Fantasy No. 2 in F-sharp Minor
Price, Adoration
Franck, Violin Sonata in A Major

Comprising 14 concerts performed in 92Y’s historic Kaufmann Concert Hall, the fall season includes two appearances by world-renowned pianist Richard Goode; an all-Rossini program from tenors Lawrence Brownlee and Michael Spyres; the first performance by The Knights as 92Y’s inaugural Ensemble in Residence; the 92Y debuts of rising star violinist Randall Goosby, intrepid cellist Seth Parker Woods, and the Grammy Award-nominated Aizuri Quartet; guitarist Ana Vidovic; MacArthur “Genius” Award winner and pianist Jeremy Denk, and others, performing a diverse group of repertoire which includes works of Eleanor Alberga, Johann Sebastian Bach, Joseph Boulogne, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jessie Montgomery, César Franck, Florence Price, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and more.

A full list of performances and dates are listed below. Concerts are for fully vaccinated audiences. For more information, including purchasing tickets and COVID-19 protocols for in-person performances, please visit 92Y.org/Concerts.
