Tickets and More Information
The four cellists on the new Franchomme Project recording – Louise Dubin, Julie Bruskin, Kathy Cherbas, and Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir – join forces in this concert of Franchomme’s rarely heard music for cello duo and cello quartets. Among the highlights: 4 of Franchomme’s soulful nocturnes for celloduo, and three cello quartets that Louise Dubin transcribed from Franchomme’s unpublished manuscripts. They’ll be playing in the resonant landmark John Street Church, completed in 1841, a year when both Franchomme and Chopin were at the peak of their composing and performing powers.
