‘Mostly Duos’ promises to be another eclectic experience

The annual “Mostly Duos” concert brings uncommon classical music to the UTD Theatre’s stage at 8 p.m. on March 1.

The program stays true to its tradition, presenting works that are fascinating, unusual and entertaining by Brahms, Kodaly, Martinu, Bolcom and Gershwin.

University of Colorado pianist David Korevaar describes Brahms’ “Variations on an Original Theme,” the concert’s opening piece, as the “most beautiful piece by Brahms that you never hear.”

Two violin and cello duos by Zoltan Kodaly and Bohuslav Martinu will follow featuring Colorado State University professor and cellist Barbara Thiem and Arts & Humanities lecturer and violinist Arkady Fomin.

The concert will conclude with “Second Sonata for Violin and Piano” by Zoltan Kodaly and “Short Story” by Gershwin.

Tickets are $15 before the show or free to UTD students with Comet Card one hour before show time. More information is available by calling the A&H Department at (972) 883-2787.
