The final program of Sarasa’s season will conclude with the warmth of a great big Russian bearhug.  Led by the ever elegant Haldan Martinson, Principal Second Violin of the BSO, Sarasa will delve into opulent, sonorous palettes of colour and virtuosic string writing in two much beloved works by compatriots and contemporaries Anton Arensky and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The program for May 21, 2017 at the First Parish in Concord will include:

Arensky String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 35 for violin, viola and two cellos
Tchaikovsky String Sextet in D minor ‘Souvenir de Florence’, Op. 70

Haldan Martinson & Christina Day Martinson, violins; Jenny Stirling & Marka Gustavsson violas; Timothy Merton & Jennifer Morsches, cellos

This performance will be held at 7:00pm in the Parish Hall at First Parish in Concord. Purchase tickets here.
