The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has just announced a gift for you – a free recital at Kleinhans Music Hall at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 27.
The afternoon concert will feature violinist Edoardo Zosi and pianist Enrica Ciccarelli performing music by Beethoven, Stravinsky, Paganini and Tartini. The pair are warming up for a recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, which will take place March 1. Buffalo is lucky to get a free chance to preview the performance.
Ciccarelli played with the BPO most recently during the celebration of Mozart’s birthday in January 2014. On that occasion she played Mozart’s C Minor Piano Concerto and showed herself to be a pianist of strength. She has recorded the concertos of Robert and Clara Schumann, and of Edvard Grieg. A native of Milan, Italy, she also serves as the artistic director of Milan’s Foundation La Società dei Concerti.
Zosi, 28, was also born in Milan. An acclaimed violinist, he plays a 1739 Carlo Bergonzi violin also known as “Mischa Piastro,” on loan from Fondazione Pro Canale.
The recital takes place in Kleinhans Music Hall’s intimate Mary Seaton Room. Although no ticket is required, anyone interested in attending is requested to RSVP by calling 242-7825.
