Special guest Jeri Jorgensen, Violin, with Cullan Bryant, Piano, will play timeless classics by Beethoven and Schubert as well as two unusual works:

  • Erno Dohnanyi’s rarely heard Sonata for Violin

The highlight of the program is Schubert’s seldom-performed Fantasie, a highlight from the composer’s late works.
