02 Oct Sundays at the Redwood Part II- Brahms, Debussy, and Wallen with Francesca McNeeley and Yvonne Chen
October 2, 2022, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Brahms, Debussy and Wallen
Cellist, Francesca McNeeley and pianist, Yvonne Chen are going to present all-time favorites such as Brahms’ epic Sonata in e minor and the highly expressive Sonata for cello and piano by Claude Debussy and in addition will offer a contemporary piece by Belize-born British composer, Errolyn Wallen.
Haitian-American cellist Francesca McNeeley has received critical acclaim as a collaborator and soloist, and enjoys an eclectic career in the Boston area. She has premiered dozens of works, solo and chamber music—including pieces by John Harbison, Mark Neikrug, Augusta Read Thomas, and Joseph Phibbs. Recent musical collaborations have included soloing with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra and touring with the Grammy-nominated A Far Cry chamber orchestra as a guest principal cellist. She is frequently featured with Castle of Our Skins, the New Gallery Concert Series, and the Celebrity Series of Boston.
A devoted chamber musician and imaginative soloist, pianist Yvonne Chen has been pushing the limits for pianists of the 21st century. Her experience playing in orchestras and varying chamber ensembles have made her adept as a collaborative musician. Meanwhile her wide array of interests within the broad solo piano repertoire makes her a pertinent musician of today. Pushing towards the outer limits of piano repertoire, she continually explores different keyboard instruments such as the sampler, toy piano, and the harpsichord.
