Joshua Roman’s 2012-13 TownMusic Season
Town Hall Seattle is proud to announce its 2012-13 TownMusic chamber-music season. This five-concert series kicks off with cellist and series Artistic Director Joshua Roman performing an evening of piano trios with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra concertmaster/violinist Dale Barltrop and acclaimed pianist Victor Santiago Asuncion on Tuesday, Sept. 11. On Monday, Nov. 5, violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo bring their unique blend of comedy, classical music, and popular culture all in the hope of making classical music accessible to a wider and younger audience. Violinist Jennifer Koh performs “Bach and Beyond,” a series of three recitals that explore the history of the solo violin repertoire from Bach’s Six Sonatas and Partitas to modern-day composers, including newly commissioned works, on Thursday, Feb. 7. On Wednesday, April 10, Talea Ensemble, conducted by James Baker and joined by Mr. Roman, present new, groundbreaking music in a concert that is sure to inspire. Wrapping up the series and returning to Town Hall after an explosive May 2011 concert, JACK Quartet, joined by Roman, performs “viscerally exciting” and “mind-blowingly good” new works, featuring a performance-specific commission by Jefferson Friedman.
Subscriptions for this five-performance series are $70 for Town Hall Members and $75 for the general public.
