On Saturday evening at 8:00 there will be a “Masterworks” concert featuring works by Bach, Samuel Adler, Sir Arnold Bax, and Debussy, performed by Brandon Patrick George on flute, Dave Moss (who has a connection to Siegel-Schwall, one of my favorite electric blues bands from the late 1960s) on viola, and Meredith Clark on harp. Sunday afternoon’s “Masterworks” concert, starting at 2:00, presents works by Beethoven performed by New York Philharmonic cellist Sumire Kudo and Steven Beck on piano.
