Live from Hochstein: Ekstasis Duo - From the Shadows

The Ektasis Duo

The Ekstasis Duo (Natasha Farny, cello and Eliran Avni, piano) will play luscious Romantic Viennese music from a student/teacher pairing, Alexander Zemlinsky and Alma Mahler; a dynamic sonata movement by George Walker (the first African-American composer to win a Pulitzer); a charming nocturne by Lili Boulanger (the first woman to win the Rome Prize); and a blockbuster sonata by Dutch composer Henriette Bosmans.

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday November 17th at 12:10pm, in person* at the Hochstein Performance Hall (50 N. Plymouth Avenue, downtown Rochester) or by listening to the live broadcast on WXXI Classical.

Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series of lunchtime concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from Hochstein Performance Hall. Each of these free “brown bag” concerts runs from 12:10-12:50 p.m., giving downtown business people, teachers, families, students, and friends an opportunity to enjoy classical music during their lunch hour. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on Classical 91.5.

* Proof of vaccination is required for audience members (children age 11 and under must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult). All patrons will be required to wear masks. Please refrain from bringing food/drink into the hall so that we can all remain masked. See the full safety protocols online here.
