On February 25 Weston Music Center Offers Tribute
to Rachmaninoff on the 150th year of his birth
At 4 pm on Saturday February 25 the Weston Music Center will offer in Emmanuel’s Great Hall a beautiful musical tribute to Rachmaninoff featuring Deborah Wong, violin, Adam Grabois, Cello and Margarita Nuller, Piano. A $20 donation is suggested. Doors open at 3:30 pm.
The program will include a piece Rachmaninoff wrote when he was 18 years old, and his elegant Sonata in G Minor for cello and piano. To bring a variety to the afternoon Deborah Wong will perform Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2 in D Major for violin and piano.
Deborah Wong, who holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from the Juilliard School Is concertmaster of the Bridgeport Symphony. She has performed with a number of symphony orchestras throughout the United States and is a recording artist for Deutsche Gramophone and other labels.
Adam Grabois has a varied career as chamber musician, soloist, teacher and recording artist and is the founder of the record label Reflex Editions, about whose first recording the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote, “Sometimes, the way he plays with the sound of a single note has enough emotional sustenance in it to launch a half-dozen distinct feelings in quick succession.”
Margarita Muller graduated from the St. Petersburg Conservatory, Russia. Since her arrival in the United States in 1990, she has performed extensively as a soloist and chamber musician in the New York metropolitan area and in New England as well as in Brazil, Russia, Spain, and Portugal.
