Close Encounters With Music

by The Staff on December 18, 2013


Close Encounters With Music, the Berkshires-based chamber music series, continues this weekend in Great Barrington with a program titled The Miraculous Violin: An Evening with Vadim Gluzman and Angela Yoffe. Gluzman plays the violin; Yoffe plays piano.

The “miraculous violin” reference probably refers to the glorious music Gluzman will make, with works by Mozart, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky and more. Or perhaps the meaning is literal: Gluzman plays the Stradivarius on which Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto was first performed.

Vadim Gluzman and Angela Yoffe will perform Saturday (Dec. 21) at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center (14 Castle St., Great Barrington, Mass.) at 6 PM. Tickets are $45, $25. For tickets and info, call the Mahaiwe box office at (413) 528-0100 or CEWM at (800) 843-0778.
