Brahms: The Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano
Sunday, May 21, 4:00 p.m.
Music For Life International and Christ Church in Short Hills present internationally-acclaimed artists - GRAMMY®-nominated violinist Elmira Darvarova (former Concertmaster, Metropolitan Opera) and Global Music award-winning concert pianist Zhen Chen - perform the three sonatas for violin and piano by Johannes Brahms. The two musicians have recorded these immortal masterpieces by Brahms and are touring internationally with the same program, as well as with other performing and recording projects, hailed by the press for their "intoxicating tonal beauty and beguilingly sensuous phrasing," "ultra-impassioned performances," and "silky-smooth voluptuous tone."
