Symphony Space Music

The intense, telepathic communication between the virtuosic Chun sisters makes for a powerful listening experience as they traverse Eastern European and other folk sources with music for two violins by Béla Bartók and Luciano Berio, and, joined by pianist Nelson Padgett, perform the rarely heard Phantasy for two violins and piano by British composer Edmund Rubbra.
A special art installation by Mahmoud Hamadani will complement this evening's performance.

"...gobs of style and glamour, and an intensity and sense of purpose that few music lovers can resist: Angela (plays) on a 1734 Domenico Montagnana and Jennifer on the 1662 Nicolo Amati known as the "Goding." This is "playing of both intensity and depth." -Laurence Vittes, Strings
"The Chun sisters' earthy performances, will bring out the Gypsy, Magyar, Slovakian or Ruthenian in your soul." -Dallas Morning News

-In the Salon is supported by a generous gift from Dr. Coco Lazaroff-
