About The Artist

Tomorrow’s leading musicians from the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music perform alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. Violinist Ida Kavafian and cellist Peter Wiley (‘74) of the Curtis faculty will join Curtis students in celebrating the centenary year of alumnus Samuel Barber (‘34) with a performance of his String Quartet. They’ll also offer Dvořák’s Piano Quintet and miniatures by Curtis composition students.

“The young musicians in the small ensemble tore into it not just with aplomb, but also with suavity and style.”
