Romance in the Afternoon

It is always a great pleasure to welcome back wonderful musicians who played for us in past years. On January 23 and 24, the Chamber Music Festival’s midwinter weekend saw Gary Levinson, violin, and Baya Kakouberi, piano, return to the Harbour to offer a memorable programme of music by Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. On Sunday, they were joined by distinguished cellist Andres Diaz, whose playing managed to be both powerful and tender. Music lovers often are amazed to find artists of such international repute on our diminutive stage but, as Mr. Levinson and Dr. Kakouberi explained, they are delighted to play in such beautiful natural surroundings and for our knowledgeable and appreciative audience.
