The Yale School of Music’s Faculty Artist Series presents a recital by pianist Boris Berman and violist Ettore Causa on Wednesday, March 5 at 8 pm. Berman and Causa will perform selections by Schubert, Stravinksy, and Brahms. The concert takes place in Morse Recital Hall, located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street.

The concert will open with Schubert’s Sonatina in G minor, Op. 137, No. 3, D 408. This charmingly simple sonatina, composed when Schubert was just nineteen, exhibits a Mozartean naiveté. Next in the program will be Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne from the ballet Pulcinella. Originally transcribed for cello and piano by Piatigorsky, this viola transcription is by Mr. Causa. MORE
