Duo Paganini will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 23, as part of the 2003-2004 Evergreen Concert Series in the Bakst Theatre at Evergreen, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
The group's performance is the final installment of this season's Friday evening concert series honoring former Evergreen resident Alice Warder Garrett's tradition of bringing talented musicians to Baltimore and inviting audiences to interact with them. Since the inception of the concert series in 1954, the Evergreen House Foundation has brought more than 189 emerging ensembles to Evergreen in celebration of Garrett's contribution to the arts.
Named in honor of violinist and composer Niccol• Paganini (1782-1840), the duo of violinist and violist Nancy Bean, assistant concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and guitarist Allen Krantz has been praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer for its "solid musicianship, sensitivity and keen ears." Duo Paganini's repertoire ranges from Bach and early 19th-century Italian to Spanish, French and contemporary works. Additionally, their programs often feature original arrangements and compositions by Krantz, director of the guitar program at Temple University. The pair appears frequently in the Philadelphia area, performing at the Academy of Music, Laurel Hill Mansion and Gretna Music at Elizabethtown College. Their performance at Evergreen will feature works by Paganini, Barrios, Schubert, Krantz, and Piazzolla.
Tickets are $15 per person and seating is limited. A reception with the artists follows the performance. Evergreen fellows, associates and sponsors are admitted free with one guest to two concerts. To make reservations or for information, call 410-516-0341 or visit www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
