This week, it’s a romp through the romantic, with works by Schubert, Dohnanyi, Beethoven and Franck. While August might be sleepy in Manhattan, these works are anything but that. A couple of our performers are fresh graduates, so it’s an opportune time to see the fruits of their educational labors. 

Elizabeth Fayette, a graduate of the Curtis Institute, returns to the Young Artist Showcase together with New Zealand native Amanda Verner of the Aotearoa String Quartet, and recent first-prize winner in the Ohio Viola Society Competition. They are joined by Jeon-Hyoun Lee, another Curtis graduate.

Their performance of two chamber pieces is followed by excerpts from Sebastian Bäverstam and Pei-Shan Lee’s recital at Weill Hall this past spring. Cellist Sebastian Bäverstam is a winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition. He is joined by pianist Pei-Shan Lee, who teaches and performs as a collaborative pianist at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
