February 13, 4pm
Randall Goosby, violin
Zhu Wang, piano
Peabody Hall, 209 Ashmont Street, Dorchester
Program to include:
Dvořák, Sonatina in G major, Op. 100
Florence Price, Fantasy No. 2 in F-sharp minor
Grieg, Sonata No. 3 in C minor, Op. 45
"Where many young musicians might make their mark with a war horse concerto by Mendelssohn, Bruch or Beethoven, Goosby instead assembled a sweeping recital program of works by Black composers — including a premiere written by the bassist Xavier Dubois Foley and first recordings of Florence Price discoveries — as well as by Dvorak and Gershwin, two white composers whose music on the album reveals an indebtedness to their Black peers."
"Goosby plays like an angel with nothing to prove. A cool, calm, collected angel."

"It was a treat to be in such intimate surroundings with the Borromeo Quartet . . Given the location within a stone’s throw of a Red Line stop, reasonably easy parking, and great acoustics, Peabody Hall and Ashmont Hill Chamber Music deserve repeat visits."
