Violinist Jennifer Frautschi joins forces with the Manasse/Nakamatsu Duo for a devilish program of thrilling virtuosity and expressive freedom. They will perform for us in a variety of combinations: Two-time GRAMMY nominee Frautschi opens the program with Ysaÿe’s Sonata for solo Violin in d minor, a sonata originally dedicated to George Enescu. Pianist Jon Nakamatsu, gold medalist in both the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition as well as the United States National Chopin Piano Competition, delivers Chopin’s transformative Fantaisie in F Minor; Jon Manasse, one of this generation’s most celebrated clarinetists, joins him for Weber’s Grand Duo Concertante for clarinet and piano. Frautschi and Nakamatsu will dance through Ravel’s Tzigane, an exhilarating work tinged with exoticized melodies and harmonies, and all three musicians apply their impeccable skill to Bartok’s Contrasts.

About the Exhibition:
The photographer is an artist who applies a lens to the world and the contemporary social order. TRANSFORMATION is a gathering of powerful and intriguing images that open stories of our times and portray a world undergoing transformation.
The exhibition will also explore the transformation of the photographic process. Photography as an artistic medium has been the beneficiary of changing technologies and new materials in the last quarter-century. The artist now has dramatic latitude in terms of scale and visual media. Photography is no longer just a pretty picture or a document. It can be many things at once, integrating many materials and media.
