Concerts by world famous classical musicians will be heard in historic Waterford this fall, part of the Waterford Concert Series.
The Calidore String Quart, one of today’s finest string ensembles, performs Sunday, September 23, 4 PM. On the program are exciting works by Prokofiev, Golijov, Janacek, and Mendelssohn. The Calidore Quartet, with “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” (NY Times) is perfect for this challenge. Book early to hear great music by outstanding young musicians. Presidential Bank is a sponsor of this concert.
Inon Barnatan, a pianist known for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry, plays Sunday, November 11, at 4 PM. The American/Israeli artist is a regular soloist with the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors. His solo recitals, collaborations (Rene Fleming, Alisa Weilerstein), and his enthusiastic participation in chamber music are widely celebrated. London’s Evening Standard called him the “poet of the keyboard.” Sponsored by Jill Beach, Alexandra M. Wilson and Robert L. Pettit.
