Live from Hochstein: Salaff Quartet: In the Light of November
The Salaff Quartet (Thomas Rodgers, violin; Molly Werts McDonald, violin; Aika Ito, viola; and Benjamin Krug, cello) performs a concert showcasing pieces that give us the impression of lights. Sunlight breaking through the dark clouds, stars and moon shining in the night. The program includes selections by Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy, Dvořák, and Sjölin.
You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday November 9th 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.
The Salaff String Quartet was founded in 2014 by four members of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra who all attended the Cleveland Institute of Music at different times but all studied chamber music with the same beloved teacher, Peter Salaff, for whom the quartet is named. As friends and young members in the orchestra, they enjoy performing together throughout the Rochester area.
Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series midday concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from The Hochstein Performance Hall. Each of these free 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 the day. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on WXXI Classical.
* Masks and vaccination are encouraged but not required. Please note that only bottled water is allowed in the newly renovated hall.
