This performance will last approximately 2 hours, which includes one 15-minute intermission.

In preparation for their international tour to Europe and the Middle East, The Murasaki Duo perform beloved classics and newly commissioned pieces. The program includes British composer David Obson’s frenetically energetic Sonata for Cello and Piano, as well as  a new work by Ethan Haimo, which Eric Kutz describes as “dark in many ways, like all the facets of a smokey diamond.”

Eric Kutz is the recipient of The Barbara K. Steppel Memorial Faculty Fellowship in Cello.
