Faculty Artist Series presents its last concert of the season
The Yale School of Music presents the cellist Ole Akahoshi and the pianist Elizabeth Parisot in concert on Friday, May 4. The concert, which takes place at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall, will mark the close of the 2011–2012 season for the Faculty Artist Series.
Akahoshi and Parisot will open with music from the Romantic period: Felix Mendelssohn’s youthful Variations concertantes in D major, Op. 17, and Johannes Brahms’s expansive Cello Sonata in E minor, Op. 38.
The second half of the concert explores music of France and Spain, beginning with the Cello Sonata No. 2 in F major, Op. 123, by Camille Saint-Saëns. The evening concludes with Manuel de Falla’s Suite populaire Espagnole, a set of six popular Spanish songs arranged for cello and piano.
The concert begins at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall, located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street (corner of Wall Street). Admission is free.
