"Levinson and Friends"

------

Ravel | Fuchs | Gershwin | Schubert

------

This concert could be titled several ways:  Levinson and Family or Levinsons and Friends.  Ten years ago, when Gary Levinson became AD for the first concert, he programmed the Trout Quintet by Schubert. He brought his father Eugene Levinson who is the former Principal Bassist for the New York Philharmonic to perform on this immensely popular work. This tradition continues on January 7 when Gary's father returns to the CMSFW stage to perform the Trout Quintet with Levinson and Friends.

 

Artists: Andrew Litton, piano; Gary Levinson, violin; Katharina Kang Litton, viola; Edward Arron, cello; Eugene Levinson, bass
