Sheku & Isata Kanneh-Mason Perform Rachmaninoff

Siblings cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (“just what classical music needs right now.” —The Guardian) and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason (“a player of considerable talent” —Classic FM) made their sensational Baltimore Debuts last season on SHCS’s Discovery Series. Sheku became a household name worldwide in 2018 after performing at the Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Since then, Sheku and Isata, both in their early 20s, have each achieved a slew of awards, notable recording releases, and important debuts, including Carnegie Hall. We’re delighted to share their performance of Rachmaninoff’s Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 19 recorded at their home in Nottingham, UK.

Edward Dusinberre: Beethoven for a Later Age

Edward Dusinberre, first violinist of the Takács Quartet, speaks about his book "Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String Quartet” and answers attendees’ questions. Beethoven’s 16 string quartets are some of the most extraordinary and challenging pieces of music ever written. But what is it like to personally take up the challenge of these compositions, not only as a musician, but as a member of a quartet, where each player has ideas about style and expression? To answer this question, Mr. Dusinberre’s book offers a rare peek inside the workings of his ensemble, while providing an insightful history of the compositions and their performance.

Paul Lewis performs Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations

"Faced with such excellence, a mere critic can only abandon paper and pencil and listen to this heroic but deeply moving artist with awe and amazement,” wrote Gramophone of British pianist Paul Lewis. Originally scheduled for this spring, Mr. Lewis’ Baltimore Recital Debut has been postponed to a future season. We’re delighted to share his performance of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, a pillar of the repertoire, recorded at London’s venerable Wigmore Hall with a personal introduction.

Florence B. Price in 2021 and Beyond

Dr. Marquese Carter (Murray State University) and Dr. Douglas Shadle (Vanderbilt University) talk about the life, work, and legacy of composer Florence B. Price (1887-1953). Ms. Price was the first African-American woman to earn an international reputation as a composer of songs, chamber music, and orchestral works, as well as the first to have a composition performed by a major American orchestra. In the opening concert of Shriver Hall Concert Series’ 2020-21 season, the Takács Quartet performed a movement from Price’s String Quartet in A minor as the encore.
