Concerts from the Library of Congress, 2014-2015: Beyond Labels

MARCH 13 at 8 PM

Kim Kashkashian
Peter Nagy

Coolidge Auditorium

An uncompromising advocate for contemporary music, Kim Kashkashian partners with Hungarian pianist Peter Nagy in this recital offering a new work written for them by László Tihanyi. Admired for “a rich, mellow timbre and impressive artistry” (The New York Times), she recently received both the 2013 GRAMMY Award for Best Classical Instrumental Album and the prestigious George Peabody Medal for exceptional contributions to music in America. This is one of a trio of concerts this season highlighting the 1690 “Tuscan-Medici” viola, on loan to the Library from the Tuscan Corporation.
