Violinist Corey Cerovsek to perform at Quick Center for the Arts
Gifted violinist Corey Cerovsek, accompanied by Ken Noda on piano, will perform in concert on Friday, April 27, at 8 p.m., in Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. Recognized as one of today's most gifted young artists, Cerovsek's outstanding recitals as well as his orchestral concerts and recordings consistently receive rave reviews.
Cerovsek made his debut in 1997 with the San Francisco Symphony where he made a triumphant return last fall for their opening week. He also returned to the Detroit Symphony in 1997 after performing there in 1996. This season he made his debut with the Berlin Symphony at the Philharmonie receiving wide critical acclaim. His first commercial recording, an all-Wieniawski CD released this year, received high praise from such publications as The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.
Pianist Ken Noda, musical assistant to James Levine of the Metropolitan Opera, has performed as a soloist with major orchestras throughout the world and under such conductors as Levine, Mehta, Ozawa and Previn. He has also collaborated as a chamber musician with James Levine, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman and Nigel Kennedy and, this past summer, was a participant at the Marlboro Festival.
On the program are Brahms' "Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano;" Revel's "Sonata for Violin and Piano;" Bartok's "Rhapsody No. 1 for Violin and Piano," "Folk Dances;" Debussy's "Sonata for Violin and Piano;" and Wieniawski's "Fantaisie Brillante on Themes" from Gounod's "Faust."
A pre-concert "Art to Heart" discussion will take place from 7 to 7:40 p.m., conducted by Dr. Laura Nash, director of Fairfield University's Classical Music Department. Tickets to the concert are $30, $27 and $24, with discounts available for students, seniors and groups. For information or reservations call (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
