The Emelin welcomes cellist Edward Arron and pianist Jeewon Park; world-renowned musicians, co-artistic directors at the Clark Institute in MA, husband and wife. The critically-acclaimed couple bring their passion, inventiveness and dazzling technique together to perform a rich and varied program from a set of variations by Beethoven’ on Mozart´s aria, “The Magic Flute,” to  “Le Grand Tango,” a single-movement piece by Astor Piazzolla that melds traditional tango rhythms with jazz-inspired syncopation. The afternoon also features the subtle harmonies, shimmering piano textures, and often folk-like melodies of Enrique Granados’ poetic Two Tonadillas, and two sonatas, the first by Beethoven who pioneered the form in a quest to create a fluid, “total sonata” that was more than a sum of its movements, and the second by César Franck, considered one of the finest sonatas for violin ever written and which will be performed on cello and piano.

 

ACCOLADES:

For Edward Arron

“Edward Arron is not only one of New York’s most exciting young cellists but also an inventive impresario.” — The New Yorker

“The young, gifted and accomplished players all seem on the verge of significant careers, as exemplified by the superb cellist Edward Arron.” — The New York Times

“There was plenty to please – the unaffected eloquence of the Adagio of Bach’s D Major Sonata, for example, or the way he carved a compelling narrative out of the first movement of Ligeti’s Solo Sonata.” — The Strad

“Arron displayed a satiny tone and a light, elegant touch in the Haydn, whose bearish technical demands belie its classic gentility. He sang out beautifully in the Adagio, and his artistic sensibility was uncompromising throughout.” — The Cincinnati Post

For Jeewon Park

“Precise and velvety…” —The Seattle Times

“Unbridled, infectious exuberance” — The New York Times

“A master of the piano” — Sarasota Observer

“Polished perfection” — Omaha World Herald

“Glittering dexterity, lyrical phrasing and pearly tone quality” — Charleston Post and Courier
