May 17 performance is second in Gordon Stewart series
On May 17 at 4 p.m., the second in a series of three chamber music concerts, sponsored posthumously by Philipstown.info founder Gordon Stewart to benefit the Episcopal Church of St. Mary-in-the-Highlands, will be presented.
The program features the Serenade Quartet: Krista Bennion Feeney and Keats Dieffenbach, violins; David Cerutti, viola; and John Feeney, bass; with special guest Rachel Evans, viola. All four musicians of the Serenade Quartet are leading artists in New York City and abroad in both historical and contemporary music. They perform together in the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the American Classical Orchestra and numerous other ensembles.
The program includes Mozart’s Salzburg Divertimento in D major, K. 136; Haydn’s String Quartet No. 4 for two violins, viola and bass in D minor, Op. 9, and the Adagio from the Divertimento for Nine Instruments; Schubert’s Galopp and his rarely played Overture in C minor, D. 8A, for two violins, viola and bass; Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 1 in G minor; and Lanner’s Die Romantiker Waltzes.
The third program on June 14 will feature solo string music by Johann Sebastian Bach performed by Bennion Feeney on violin and Evans on viola, with Feeney on bass joining in for a trio.
