Now here them step out of the symphony orchestra to play the most intimate and challenging type of chamber music – string quartet. We welcome members of our own Dallas Symphony as they present one of the most beloved masterpieces of the repertoire, Dvorak’s American String Quartet. Written when Dvorak was living in the United States, the music is full of unforgettable melodies, ranging from African American Spirituals to Slavic dances, which connected Dvorak to his native land. A Blue Candlelight first and not to be missed.

Eugenia Zukerman is unique in the music world. A soloist, consummate chamber musician, novelist, television reporter, educator – the list is too long to do her career justice. She is an ambassador of music, who comes to us with pianist Anton Nel, of University of Texas/Austin and our own Gary Levinson performing music of Bartok, CPE Bach, on the 300th anniversary of his birth and many other nuggets sure to wow and delight. A huge coup for BCMS, we are just delighted to have these three artists collaborating for the first time, although Zukerman and Levinson have toured as a flute trio with another artist. There will be electricity in the air, be there!
