Tenor Karim Sulayman, violinist Danbi Um and pianist Juho Pohjonen present an evening of first-rate chamber music on January 30, with works by Korngold, Schubert, Strauss, Rachmaninoff and Kreisler. It’s the first concert in the 2017-18 Young Artists series presented by the Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach.
Pohjonen is regarded as one of Finland’s most outstanding pianists and is closely associated with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. He has appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra and many others.
Um plays on a 1683 “ex-Petschek” Nicolo Amati violin, on loan from a private collection. She regularly appears at such highly regarded events as the Marlboro, Ravinia, Music@Menlo, Yellow Barn, Moab, Caramoor and North Shore chamber music festivals.
Sulayman commands a vast range of vocal repertoire, ranging from the Renaissance to Contemporary styles, and has earned critical acclaim for his performances at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, New York City Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms, the Casals Festival, Aspen Music Festival, the Marlboro Music Festival and other important ensembles and venues. A champion of vocal chamber music, he is associated with the chamber music societies of Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Cleveland–and now Palm Beach!
Younger musicians in particular will want to take advantage of this specially priced series.
