About Soloists of the Kronberg Academy - Saturday
Antoine Tamestit, Viola
Gary Hoffman, Cello
The Kronberg Academy—an international program that provides a springboard for brilliant young string players and pianists—performs classics by Dvořák, Kodály, and Tchaikovsky. Dvořák looks to Czech folk dance in his Terzetto, a work that concludes with a brilliant set of variations. There’s Hungarian folk themes in Kodály’s Duo, seamlessly integrated throughout this powerful work. Despite its title, there’s little Italian in Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, a lyrical work filled with Russian tunes.
