Words Fail: Violinist Yevgeny Kutik and Pianist Timo Andres

October 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik, known for his “dark-hued tone and razor-sharp technique” (The New York Times) and pianist/composer Timo Andres perform selections from Kutik’s new album, Words Fail, out October 28 on Marquis Classics. The program includes two of Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words, plus the New York premiere of Andres’ Words Fail and the world premiere of Michael Gandolfi’s Arioso Doloroso/Estatico, which were both commissioned by Kutik for the album. The Washington Post reviewed the premiere of Andres’ new work last season, writing, “From a descending lament, the work slowly gathers power through overlapping variations, becoming darker, more ambiguous and more complex before building to a soaring climax. Kutik and Andres gave a persuasive, deeply thoughtful reading to this involving new work.”
