"CMA Chamber Music on Main" First Concert of 2015

Bella Histrova

The Columbia Museum of Art presents the third concert in the 13th season of "CMA Chamber Music on Main"on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at 7:00 p.m., intimately set in the museum's DuBose-Poston Reception Hall. Artistic director and internationally acclaimed cellist Edward Arron hosts an evening of chamber music with a debut by a new violinist and an arrangement by popular clarinetist.


"Our first concert of 2015 brings back two Columbia favorites and 'CMA Chamber Music on Main' veterans: clarinetist Todd Palmer and pianist Gilles Vonsattel," says Arron. "And we will have another exciting Columbia debut, this time by the virtuosic and passionate young violinist Bella Hristova, whose career is rapidly on the rise. The program includes one of Beethoven's great masterpieces of the classical era, a captivating and entertaining suite by Stravinsky, a vividly colorful sonata by Debussy, and the South Carolina premiere of our very own Todd Palmer's trio arrangement of the Grand Duo Concertant by Carl Maria von Weber. This program promises to be a thriller! I look forward to seeing you in February."
