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.
