A Musical Feast features the Buffalo debut of pianist Dmitri Novgorodsky. Novgorodsky will offer a rare, local performance of one of Bach’s solo partitas for keyboard, the Partita No.5 in G Major, BWV829 from the composer’s Opus No. 1. He will join Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra associate principal cellist Feng Hew and her husband, BPO violinist Sheh-Jian Tsai in a performance of one of the most melodious gems of the piano trio repertoire, Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49. Daniel Bassin, music director of the University at Buffalo Symphony Orchestra, will lay down his baton and take up his trumpet for a performance of Morton Feldman’s A Very Short Trumpet Piece. Rounding out the eclectic program, UB percussionist Tom Kolor will be joined by Fredonia State percussionist John Bacon in a performance of minimalist icon composer Steve Reich’s 1972 work, Clapping Music for Two Performers.
