Sarah E. Geller at An die Musik LIVE

Violinist Sarah GellerThe classical music wing of Ionarts is based in Washington, D.C. From time to time, however, we do recommend and even attend concerts in Baltimore. One of the more interesting cutting-edge series in Charm City is An die Musik LIVE, which offers concerts of all kinds of music, including classical. At the end of this month -- one week from today -- is a concert in which we have a particular interest, a recital by violinist Sarah E. Geller and pianist Vladimir Valjarevic, on Sunday, October 30, at 3 pm. They will be playing a program called "Florestan and Eusebius," featuring Robert Schumann's Sonata No. 1 in A Minor, Clara Schumann's Drei Romanzen, op. 22, Karol Szymanowski's Notturno e Tarantella, op. 28, and César Franck's Sonata in A Major. Tickets are $12, and $8 for students and seniors.

Originally from Maine and living in New York City since graduating from the Manhattan School of Music, where she received the Helen Airoff Dowling Award for outstanding undergraduate violinist, Ms. Geller has played in Weil Hall at Carnegie Hall and Merkin Concert Hall at Lincoln Center, among lots of other places. Besides being an outstanding young performer, in the interest of full disclosure, she has a personal connection to me: Mrs. Ionarts and Sarah's sister are old friends. I hope our Baltimore readers will come out to hear her play.

Other concerts coming up at An die Musik LIVE include pianist Sonya Lifschitz (Saturday, October 29, 2 pm), and violinist Nicolas Dautricourt and pianist Eric Le Sage (Tuesday, November 8, 7:30 pm).

It's good to see Szymanowski showing up on a program, and I've heard some other interesting recitals in An die Musik's classical series. (They were coordinating visits to Baltimore from the French Embassy's music series, especially Baroque ensembles, though it seems not so frequently lately.) Thanks very much for posting this notice with the program details.

Mark,
Is there an appropriately disreputable watering hole you can recommend near there? Szymanowski always makes me thirsty.

The venue has beer, wine and soft drinks during concerts. They also have a discount dining program with four restaurants within a block. Pick up a voucher to present when you dine (the voucher is valid only for the same day as your concert ticket).

Szymanowski AND beer? I don't think anyone can resist that combination.
