Saturday, April 1, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Pianist Diana Fanning and cellist Dieuwke Davydov formed a strong musical connection 40 years ago which developed into an international duo. The duo celebrates this milestone with an international tour, including a stop at Brandon Music April 1.
Fanning and Davydov have been acclaimed for their virtuosic brilliance, musical insight, and remarkable rapport as a duo. The Haarlems Dagblad in Holland said, “The duo offered instrumental virtuosity, noble lyricism, and dancing rhythm. Both musicians played with flair, emotional power, and total understanding.”
Their program includes Beethoven’s Cello Sonata in G minor; Hindemith’s “Phantasiestück”; Saint-Saëns’“Allegro Appassionato”; Vermont composer Kathy Wonson “Eddy’s Peace on Earth: A Thrush Singing”; and Brahms’ Cello Sonata in E minor. Fanning will also perform solo pieces by Debussy and Chopin.
Besides touring in New England, the duo has undertaken extensive concert tours of Europe which have included recordings for Radio Netherlands. Radio audiences throughout the Northeast and Canada have heard the duo on the “Morning Pro Musica” Live Performers Series over WGBH-FM, Boston. Davydov and Fanning have also been featured in live concert performances on WNYC, New York, and on Vermont Public Radio.
