There is probably no greater inspiration for art, music, or literature than Love. At one extreme there’s the passionate love of Mozart. At the other,Don Quixote’s chivalric love of the peasant woman, Dulcinea. There’s also the love for string instruments that began for composer Libby Larsen the first time she heard a live performance.

To round out this concert, we’re thrilled to welcome back cellist Lars Hoefs (who performed a recital here in 2016) for the world premiere of a Concerto for Cello and Strings written for him by Brazilian composer Joao Guilherme Ripper. The composer is among South America’s best-known and most prolific. This performance will be presented as a part of the Villa-Lobos International Chamber Festival organized by Mr. Hoefs.

This concert is made possible in part by generous gifts from:
Carol & Rolland Mambourg
Peg Moore in loving memory of Jimmy Moore
