In this first concert in a new alliance between 92Y and the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music, an ensemble comprising esteemed faculty – including Ida Kavafian on violin and Peter Wiley on cello – and recent alumni of Curtis perform Schubert’s C-Major Quintet. The quintet is followed by the New York premiere of a new work by another member of Curtis’ faculty, with Grammy Award-winning composer Richard Danielpour’s A Shattered Vessel. Written 190 years after the Schubert work for the same instrumentation of two violins, viola and two cellos, A Shattered Vessel contemplates crisis and struggle, loss and healing, renewal and gratitude. Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn Global Touring Initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music.
