John Kamfonas, Piano; Sebastiaan de Grebber, Mandolin; Caleb van der Swaagh, Cello; Sharon Park, Violin
Greek-American pianist John Kamfonas will perform an electrifying evening of solo and small ensemble works. Described as "mesmerizing ... inspirational...and eccentric" (Deccan Herald, Bangalore), Mr.
Kamfonas opens the program with solo piano pieces by Manos Hadjidakis and Samuel Barber, both inspired by dance music, as well as works by Franz Liszt.
The second half features solo music by Busoni and ensemble works by Victor Kioulaphides, both his dynamic and highly virtuosic Rhapsody for mandolin and piano and the world premiere of his Piano Trio. For these works, Mr. Kamfonas will be joined by cellist Caleb van der Swaagh, violinist Sharon Park, and mandolinist Sebastiaan de Grebber. All audience members are invited to a reception with the performers following the concert.
This concert is presented by the Hellenic American Cultural Foundation.
